Homemade Wasabi

                                       Homemade Wasabi

      Ingredient

      150 gm            Coleman Mustard Powder, sieve
      1/2 teasp          Sugar
                              *freshly boiled Spinach/Bayam juice
                              Pinch of Salt
                              A few drops of Apple Green colour
       1 teasp            Oil [for smoothness]
       1/2 teasp         Icing Sugar
       1/4 teasp         Ground White Pepper powder [to enhance the Mustard taste]

       Method
  1. *To get the boiled Spinach/Bayam juice :-
             (a) Take a handful of Spinach/Bayam leaves only and liquidise with 120 ml water;
             (b) Take 2 small strainers and place it on top of each other and on top of a small pot [this way you
                   can make it more clearer, learnt this while watching my Chef at class.  Of course you
                   can use a muslin cloth but then it will stain the muslin] & strain the liquid directly into the
                   small pot;

    2.  Add the salt, pepper, icing sugar, oil in the same pot & bring it to a boil on low medium heat.  Stir it and once boiled, remove from fire. Let it cool for 3 minutes.

     3.  Gradually mix the mustard powder with your fingers to the [slightly cooled] juice till you get the consistency of a soft dough.  Add a few drops of the apple green colour and mix well.

           N/B

                    1.  I tried this once before; quite good.
                    2.  Always use good mustard e.g. Coleman Mustard Double Superfine Mustard Powder.
                    3.  Put the homemade mustard in a air tight container; cling film it and can store in the
                         Chiller.  Please note that there are no perservatives so cant keep very long and
                         always use a clean dry spoon.

                 BLESSED AND HAPPY NEW YEAR readers. Till my next post, xoxo, Ophelia

Dear Ophelia,

You posted a comment on my blog some time ago, which I missed and only read recently. Just popping by here to say thanks for your encouragement! Just so you know, I'm back in good ol' Johor Bahru now and I did decently for my exams!

You've got a nice blog here and I'll be reading on to see whether there are any simple recipes I can try when I'm back in Melbourne. Also, it's nice to know that you're a fellow Christian. :)

May the Lord keep you and bless you this new year, and may you walk ever closer to him despite any hardships that come your way.

Best regards,
Wei-xun
