Method:
  • Melt Stage 1 (fat stage) ingredients in a double boiler.
  • Sprinkle Konjac Glucomannan Powder over freshly boiled spring water with other Stage 2 (water stage) ingredients included and stick blend in a double boiler on the heat until fully dissolved and smooth. It will thicken up as a gel later when it cools down.
  • Then add Stage 1 (fat stage) ingredients to Stage 2 (water stage). Stir together with a spoon or spatula until you see they are fully mixed in.
  • Stick blend briefly until emulsification has occurred. This takes about 30 seconds and the emulsion on the cowl of the stick blender will look like a smooth single cream.
  • Remove from the heat and stir slowly with a spoon or spatula whilst cooling naturally. Do not stick blend or accelerate the cooling during this stage.
  • Combine Stage 3 materials and when the emulsion is below 40°C, add to the cream and stir thoroughly. Jar and label.
