You might think that the title up there is incomplete. "Making chocolate whats?" you might ask. Chocolate eggs? Chocolate cake? Chocolate mousse? No, dear friends, the title is correct. In the name of Crafting and Intrepid-ness, a local blogging friend, Amber from Fifty First Crafts and I teamed up to actually make chocolate from scratch. Roasting, winnowing, grinding, conching, etc. The whole nine yards. It was a lot of work (since we didn't really know what we were doing, although we meant well) and a lot of fun (Amber is lovely and how could making chocolate not be fun?).
I've written a Lengthy Guest Post for the delightful Nelly from Cooking with Books that she will be posting on the 27th. I will link to her post then. [Update: Link to Making Chocolate From Scratch on Cooking with Books] For now, enjoy the video and check out Amber's process posts over at her place.
Have a lovely day.
