chef sam's making ... peanut butter granola and fresh soy milk
this is our 50 lbs. bag of organic oats. yes -- we eat a lot of oats, usually raw (i'll post that soon) but also as homemade granola, in pancakes and all sorts of other great baked goods. it usually takes us about 4-6 months to finish a bag.
chef sam made some amazing peanut butter granola and fresh soy milk, so i documented the process to share with ya'll.
the granola was a mix of oats, sugar, cinnamon, pb, coconut, chopped almonds, sesame seeds and butter -- baked on a cookie sheet in the oven 'til golden brown.
chef sam's mom used to make fresh soy milk when he was a kid and he has fond memories of her giving him hot steaming bowls of it with sugar or with chinese dougnuts.
first he soaked the dry soy beans in water for several hours.
then he blended them all up and strained the mixture throw a cloth.
what a perfect combination! both were very delicious and if you've never had homemade soymilk, you should try it! it's totally different than anything you can get in the store.
ciao for now!
