Many items or foodstuff we buy in stores are things we can produce by ourselves in our various homes which will even taste better and add more nutrition to our body than those we buy at stores, Why? This is before most things like canned soup, butter, milk can be sold in stores, it has to packed with chemicals that will prolong it's shelf life, thereby affecting it's taste and nutritional value.
With the help of this, you will like to be making some of your foodstuff at home than buy it outside with chemicals that damage the cell in the body. Eating too much chemicals in food cause cancer.
• Microwave or double boiler
In case you don't have a double boiler, you can improvise like the picture above, you will find a pot and fill it halfway with water then place a small empty pot on top of the water. The small pot is the double boiler.
• Measuring spoon
• Lemon - 1 teaspoon
• Salt - A pinch
• Milk - 2 Tablespoons
• Yellow food colour - As desired
• Vegetable oil -3 tablespoons
• Coconut oil - 8 tablespoons or 30 grams
Step 1: Place the coconut oil in the top part of the double boiler and heat it up for some time, you can also microwave it till it dissolves
• Step 2: Let it cool down a bit then add the remaining ingredients to it
• Step 3: Transfer it into a blender or whisk it for 5 minutes till the mixture becomes smooth
• Step 4: Transfer the contents of the blender into a bowl then let it cool down for some time before transferring it into a freezer till the mixture solidifies then it is ready for use.
This is very nutritious and intresting to prepare, it only takes about 30 minutes to prepare it apart from the refrigeration part.
The lemon juice does not only boost the taste, it also acts as a Preservative to increase the products shelf life, the salt acts as an inhibitor (helps the margarine to gain solid form). The margarine can also last up to 1 month in refrigeration.
Margarine is mostly prepared with vegetable oil, so you can use any oil you like ranging from olive oil and many others but coconut oil solidifies faster and has a more sweeter taste than the others. You really need to try this thing out and i am sure you won't buy margarine again.
