Tempeh: how to remove shell from soy beans?

Postby patrice on Fri Apr 05, 2019 7:59 pm

I made tempeh twice. It was great but it took hours to remove all the shells from the beans.

What's the trick to do that easily?

Thanks

Five hundred ml of soy beans were turned into tempeh. Procedure is wash, boil for 15 minutes, remove hulls and split by rubbing about five times and draining off. Pressure cook about 45 minutes, remove and cool to room temperature 20C, add tempeh starter and mix well. Place in cotton lined molds. Place in fermenter for about 36 hours. Wrap in plastic wrap and store in refrigerator. The cooler refrigerator effectively stops further fermentation.

Removing the shell is not onerous. At most it takes about 5 minutes for about a pound, 500 ml, of beans.
