About: Hi! I am Klinong, that is how my loving family calls me, except my brother, he calls me Krinyol, as I have silly curly hair :) I love Instructables for forever now, especially for the contests ha-ha!, but ...

Where we lived, no tofu nor soy milk in town, so I had to make myself whenever I wanted to eat tofu. The beans themselves, always had to be purchased in the capital city which was about 5-6 hours drive hahaha DEDICATION when you are craving :)

Step 1: Method

900 g soy beans

A lot of water to soak the beans through the night (in a couple of hours, the beans would soak some water and you will need to add more water to cover the beans.

Each time you see the water is lessen, rinse the beans and soak with new clean water to cover the beans again)

After being soaked all night long, rinse beans twice more

Pour one cup of beans into electric blender, add in 3 cups of water and process until smooth (repeat this step until all beans used up)

Pour blended mixture into a very large cooking pot and bring to boil for 20 minutes long

Prepare another large cooking pot and line with cheesecloth

Pour boiled mixture through cheesecloth carefully

Every 8 cups of boiled strained milk, mix in 1 tbsp vinegar (for soft tofu, 2 tbsp for firmer tofu). You will see result right away.

Prepare a large cooking pot or container, lined with cheesecloth and clean kitchen cloth. Pour tofu on the clothes and squeeze water out as much as you can (you can also just gather the clothes and hang it for a couple of hours as shown on picture.

Once no more water dripping, place tofu in container and let rest for an hour or two before slicing and cooking

I like fried salted tofu, which is basically you dissolve a little salt in water, slice the tofu and dip to coat on salted water and fry :)

Serve warm is yuuummeeeehhh

Enjoy~
