“If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop digging.” – Will Rogers

Chocolate Morsel of the Day

There are two ways to grind your nibs into liqueur. You will have to decide which is best for you.

1) With the Champion Juicer. The benefit here is the screen in the Juicer will remove any residual husk from your winnowing. The drawback is you have another piece of equipement (which you many already have if you use it for cracking instead of the Cocoa mill)

2) With the Santha Stone Melanger. The benefit here is one less piece of equipment. The drawback here is that you may have bits of refined husk (which are not harmful, but may affect flavor) in your final chocolate and you will push the Melanger to its limit.

a little more on this Monday…
