Method:
  • Put Stage 1 (fat stage) ingredients into a small bowl in a bain marie / double boiler to heat to above 75°C.
  • Meanwhile, combine the Stage 2 (water stage) Glycerin and Konjac Glucomannan Powder together to make a paste, then pour the heated water over the paste. Use a stick blend to make a smooth, thin gel. Do not pump the stick blender up and down.
  • Add the Stage 1 oils to the Stage 2 gel and stir thoroughly with a spatula.
  • Then, stick blend briefly, then look at the cowl of the stick blender. If you can see particles, you need to stick blend more. Check again and you will see a smooth thin cream on the cowl. Ignore small bubbles or foam. The whole emulsification process takes about 30 seconds so do not over blend or aerate this.
  • As soon as it is emulsified, allow it to cool down whilst stirring with a spatula continuously. Do not accelerate the cooling and avoid beating air into the cream.
  • When it is under 40°C, add the Stage 3 (heat sensitive) ingredients and mix thoroughly. Put into jars and label.
