Method:

Add the Vegetal to the fat stage (stage 1) and heat in a double boiler until the temperature is over 75°C. The water stage (stage 2) should also be over 75°C. Pour the fat stage into the water stage and use a stick blender (high shear) to emulsify the two stages. This will happen in just a few minutes so keep checking. 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 any stage 3 (heat sensitive) ingredients. Combine thoroughly, jar or bottle and label.
