condensed soymilk

I was talking to one of my fellow Poplar Spring volunteers this past Saturday about condensed soymilk. He and his wife are from Brazil, and they started importing condensed soymilk from Brazil to the states this past year, which has been sold through pangea and vegan essentials, I believe. They’re starting to import a different brand, which should be in Pangea soon (they’re first because they’re local), and will get out to the other online vegan retailers from there, and then hopefully to local stores. Within a month, he thinks, is the time frame for them to hit Pangea’s shelves.

Tonight, however, I managed to accidentally make myself some condensed soymilk, so if you want to save money or can’t wait for them to be stocked at Pangea, here’s the recipe:

  1. Put some soymilk in a pan
  2. Heat the soymilk on the stove on medium heat
  3. Get involved in doing something else and forget that you’re heating soymilk to make hot chocolate
  4. Forget for a while longer…
  5. At some point wander into the kitchen and realize that you had forgotten that you were heating soymilk and that it has now become a condensed version of soymilk, not suitable for hot chocolate, but delicious on its own merits.

I’d recommend using a pan that is big enough that as the soymilk rises in that bubbly froth that it does when it has been heating for a while (I have a habit of forgetting about my hot chocolate, just not usually for this long!) it won’t run over. I don’t even know for how long the soymilk was heating – 15-30 minutes, at best guess.

It was delicious.

    Haha, or if you make your own soy milk, just don’t add enough water.

    lol. I didn’t even think of that, but I bet making it condensed from the start is the easiest way all around! 😀
