“Unless someone like you cares a whole lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not!” The Lorax – Dr. Seuss

Chocolate Morsel of the Day

Refining is probably the most mysterious yet simplest of the chocolate making steps. Place your ingredients (cocoa liquer, sugar and any optional ingredients like cocoa butter and lecithin) and refing with the Alchemist’s Stone Chocolate Melanger until the “grit” is gone. That’s it. Probably 12 hours at a minimum, up to 72 hours if you feel like it. Oh, and how do you tell? Taste it!
