Tempeh!

This fresh tempeh really smell sweet...i can't believe it!


My third attempt of tempeh making and i did it! 100% success and really happy. This time i used a kilogram of  soybeans...and i made an open-face tempeh in a plastic container not in the plastic bag like before. So, today for the dinner, i will prepare some Fried Tempeh Sambol (an Indonesian/Javanese dish) and i think abg.bear will salivate to see my tempeh...yuuuuummmmmmyyyy...and now i am waiting to get a new batch of tempeh starter from my Larling & Joshua...

p.s.: i think another success factor is using a table spoon of vinegar during boiling the soybeans...

Major factor of succes: the innoculum was provided by your larling maa...

second important factor: Someone send the innoculum to you. Without this person, the innoculum will still be in Malaysia. Habuk pun takde. Kan? Kan?

hey there.. i was bloghopping just now and jumped here thru abg bear's.. i love tempe soooo much... maybe u shud share the recipe of making tempe with me??? please3.... dok kat moscow pon takde tempe lah...

hej! tiffany...thanks for bloghopping by...well, it's not difficult to make one, you need the tempeh starter and soybeans...need to use 5gm tepeh starter for a kilo of soybeans. just soak overnight the beans and the next morning, squeeze the beans until all the outer skins are removed (dehulled), then you boil for one hour the beans with water fully covered the bean and add a table spoon of vinegar. after that, drain off the water and dry the beans, then add the starter, mix well...ready to pack and put in the incubator (boiler room or use heater) for 24 hours. if everything ok, you will see the white fungus around the beans in 12 to 15 hours...you can order the starter from belgium...check this link: http://www.tempeh.info/
cheers!

Wow, am impressed!

I too used to make tempeh in my boiler room. Most wonderful sight when the beans are all covered in mycelium the following morning. As you say, fresh tempeh smells sweet. Well done!
