Method:
  • Weigh all Stage 1 (fat stage) materials into a stainless steel bowl and place into a saucepan of boiling water (double boiler/bain marie). Bring up to a temperature of over 75°C.
  • When the Stage 1 is over 75°C, add the Stage 2 (water stage) ingredients to a larger stainless steel bowl. Swap the bowls over so the larger bowl is in the double boiler.
  • Pour the Stage 1 (fat stage) ingredients into the Stage 2 (water stage) and stir gently without creating air bubbles. Check that the temperature is over 75°C, and then stir continuously for 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes, remove bowl from the double boiler and put into a pan of cold water to cool it down quickly. Keep stirring all the time.
  • When the cream is under 40°C add the remaining Stage 3 (heat sensitive) ingredients. Combine thoroughly, jar and label.
