Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)

A couple nights ago we soaked some soy beans in the fridge to make soy milk. In order to make soy milk, you have to soak the beans*, strain the beans, remove the hulls, add water, blend the beans, filter the mix and heat the liquid with a bit of salt and honey. Removing the hulls was quite the task but worth every second once we tried it as a Green Tea with Ginger Soy Latté! So tasty and sweet in flavor - because of the honey. We'll definitely be trying it again soon! The left over soy pulp is called 'okara'. Okara can be made into tofu and applied to different recipes!

* If the anti nutrients in soy are not removed by extensive preparation like fermentation or soaking, soybeans are really bad for your health. Learn more about it here.
