Method:
  • Put Stage 1 (fat soluble) ingredients into a small bowl in a bain marie.
  • When they are above 75°C, weigh the Stage 2 (water soluble) into a larger bowl and put onto the bain marie. Stir briefly to dissolve the emulsifier.
  • Pour the Stage 1 into the Stage 2 and start to stick blend. After a few seconds, look at the cowl of the stick blender (covers the blade) and see what the mix looks like. If it is granular and separating, stick blend a little longer. When the cream looks smooth and like a runny single cream, stop stick blending and take it off the heat. It normally takes 20 to 30 seconds to achieve this.
  • Cool down in a pan of cold water whilst stirring with a spatula.
  • When it is under 40°C, add the Stage 3 (heat sensitive) ingredients and mix thoroughly. Put into jars and label.
