Tofu Shop – Matt Schmidt

bags of soy beans are ground and cooked

Soy beans arrive in large sacks -- The first step is soaking them overnight in filtered water. Then they go into the left side of this contraption where they are ground -- then info the big pot on the right where they are cooked. http://www.tofushop.com

The resulting product is then strained -- the part that doesn't make it through the strainer is given to a local farmer to feed his livestock.  The resulting product is curds and when -- curds are formed into blocks of tofu and the whey is expressed.

The door on the smokehouse opens and a burst of steaming smoke comes out -- along with a scent similar to smoked salmon....or any smoked food -- delicious!

Jessica and I salivated at the sight of these...and yes, Matt had pity on us and gave us samples before we left.  We munched those down on the way to Eddie Tanner's farm and they were satisfying and very yummy!
