Yesterday's market was my first City Hall foray with the BrisStyle crew and it was a great day. The new refurbished rooms at City Hall look great, beautiful big ol' classic spaces - such a great venue for things that have been made by hand with love. If you've not yet been the next one will be on Saturday, 10 August - check out the website for more details brisstyle.com.au
My little stall...

- soak the beans overnight I use about one cup of dried beans
- next morning while your mister (or missus) is making you breakfast replace the water in the bowl with hot water and rub the crap out of the beans to remove the skins - this takes some time, but it's quite cathartic and dunking your hands in steaming hot water on a cold winter morning is pretty nice!
- once you've got as much of the skin off as you can - blend - in about two or three batches blend with 1.5L of water - whizz up it
- boil the lovely white frothy mixture for about two minutes, then simmer for half an hour, up to 45 minutes
- strain the mixture into a bowl or jar - I used a piece of linen from my sewing supplies, no need to buy fancy cheese cloth - you can use a clean teatowel too
- taste and add anything you like to sweeten or flavour - I added a a few drops of vanilla and a teaspoon of fruit sugar... and you're done!
