Just curious if anyone tried making their own tofu.<br><br><br><br>

I make my own - but only as a hobby/interest (I buy most of what I eat). It's fun, but it can be time consuming and messy - so I don't rely on it for all my tofu needs.<br><br><br><br>
That site is great. Looks like the kit is sold out though.<br><br><br><br>
I have a traditional cedar wood box, and it works pretty good. I liked the stainless one at the website (sanitation wise - it's a better choice). You don't really even need a box though. You can use a empty milk cartons with holes punched in them and that would work.

Me and my mum tried once, years ago. It was horrible, it tasted fishy. Maybe it was something we did wrong.

Here are two more sites:<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.makesoymilk.com" target="_blank">www.makesoymilk.com</a> (this site sells the soyajoy soymilk maker as well as tofu making supplies) I got my soymilk maker from this site, and the company is reliable.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.ri-tofu.com/index.html" target="_blank">http://www.ri-tofu.com/index.html</a> This site has soymilk/tofu making supplies. I don't have any idea if it's any good or if the company is reliable

Here is a web site that shows step by step instructions on how to make tofu along with color pictures.<br><br><br><br>
This method doesn't require anything special except for cheesecloth and coagulent.<br><br><br><br>
Boy, they did a great job here. He talks about using lemon juice and Cider vinegar as a coagulent......I dunno about that though (if anyone needed just a little powdered coagulent to try out the process - and didn't mind givning me their address - I could send you some in a regular envelope....and pray the post office didn't think it was anthrax)<br><br><br><br><a href="http://senior.billings.k12.mt.us/vlong/veggiewrangler/tofu/" target="_blank">Easy Way To Make Tofu</a>
