      Title: Tofu (4)
 Categories: Main dish
      Yield: 1 Servings
  Boil a bunch of soybeans in a big pot until they get soft. Mush them
  up somehow  a blender does a good job. You should keep enough water
  in the pot so the resulting mush is fairly liquidy maybe like a thin
  Strain the resulting mush somehow  a few layers of cloth or a fine
  strainer depending on how finely you mushed stuff up. Try to squeeze
  out all the liquid. Put the solid part in the compost or feed it to
  your pigs or whatever.  Put the liquid part back in the pot and get
  it boiling. By the way, you now have soy milk you can just stop now
  and drink it if you'd like.
  Now comes the fun part, you need to put something in the boiling
  liquid to make in coagulate.  The normal thing for tofu is called
  Nagara (Ok, I don't know how to spell it). Anything acidic (lemon
  juice, lime juice, hot pepper juice, etc) will work but of course
  it'll alter the flavor a bit. Just put in enough coagulant (while
  stirring) until the stuff coagulates. It might take a few minutes.
  Turn the heat off and let it sit for ten minutes or so, then pour it
  through some cheesecloth. You can rinse the curds off to remove some
  of the flavor of the coagulant taste them first to see if you need
  too. Press the solid part with some form of weight. The longer and
  harder you press it, the firmer it'll be. Converted by MMCONV vers.
