Ultra healthy Homemade Chocolate
Making your own chocolate from the roasted cocoa nibs is so much more simplified with the Ultra Chocogrind. Cocoa beans come in a lot of varieties and making good quality chocolate starts with choosing the right beans. It is always better to buy roasted beans as compared to raw. Beans that are professionally roasted, are slow roasted evenly at the right temperature for chocolate to get its body and flavour. When you roast at home, it is often in a pan and the beans can be crowded and therefore unevenly roasted.
Decide how bitter you would like your chocolate to be. The addition of sugar determines the percentage of chocolate. 75% dark refers to roughy a 3:1 ratio where 24% is sugar and 1% would be vanilla or any other additives used for flavouring.
Before you start to grind the roasted beans, ensure your Ultra Chocogrind is clean and dry. Add the beans, sugar and additive all at once. You can decide to add cocoa butter as a portion of your chocolate (in the 75%) and set to grind.
Once done, you can pour this mixture on trays or silicon moulds and freeze. You now have, the perfect base chocolate that is homemade and tastes just the way you like your chocolate.
