Method:
  • Heat the Stage 1 (fat stage) materials in a stainless steel bowl on a bain marie (double boiler) to above 75°C.
  • Add the Stage 1 (fat stage) to the Stage 2 (water stage) and stir thoroughly to combine the ingredients (this important), then stick blend for about 20 seconds until emulsified. Stop stick blending and remove from the heat.
  • Allow to cool naturally whilst stirring with a spoon or spatula continuously. Do not accelerate the cooling time in a cold water bath and do not use the stick blender.
  • When the cream is below 40°C, combine the Stage 3 (heat sensitive) ingredients and then add to the cream. Stir thoroughly then jar and label.
