Method:
  • Heat Stage 1 (fat stage) in a stainless steel bowl on a double boiler until the temperature is above 75 °C.
  • When the Stage 1 (fat stage) ingredients are at the right temperature, add Stage 2 (water stage) ingredients into a stainless steel bowl and place on the double boiler instead of the fat stage.
  • Pour the Stage 1 (fat stage) into Stage 2 (water stage) and use a stick blender (high shear) to emulsify the two stages. This will happen in about 30 seconds, so keep checking. Ensure the temperature is above 75 °C. When you lift the stick blender out of the mixture, the mix running off the blender head should look like a thin cream. If it looks granular or like it is separating, it needs more high shear blending.
  • When it has emulsified, take it out of the double boiler and use a spatula to stir it whilst it is cooling down. You can use a cold water bath to speed up the cooling. Do not continue to use the stick blender as this will destroy the liquid crystal structure that the emulsification has formed.
  • When it is under 40 °C, add the Stage 3 (heat sensitive) ingredients. Combine thoroughly, jar and label.
