Homemade Margarine

4 comments

It all started when I decided to make American chocolate cookies… heavenly biscuits with chocolate chunks, really tempting.
I made the first ones with with soy margarine, good, but my “health maniac” conscience… rebelled to vegetable oils of unknown source… the second ones tasted too much of oil and they were too greasy; the third and last ones came out perfect using my margarine!
Searching on the internet and reading the ingredients of the margarines on the market, I came up with a recipe, still being tested, very simple.

Ingredients:
(makes 100gr of margarine)
70gr of vegetable oil (sunflower, corn, soy, olive, etc..)
20gr of plain water
10gr granulated soy lecithin

Method:
You put all the ingredients in a blender (I use the small one of the hand blender set), and whisk for 1 minute, or until you achieve the desired consistency. Then use as desired.
All margarines are in fact made of different percentage of fats, water and thickeners.
The thickening agents are molecules that bind together with either water (hydrophilic part) and fat (lipophilic part) and therefore bind it all together!
The consistency you get is that of quite a firm mayonnaise, so for recipes that call for soft margarine, this is fine. I tried and stored it in the fridge to harden, but the result was not encouraging: the ingredients partially separated. Perhaps by adding a little more thickener, or by changing the proportions of ingredients, or by processing it for a longer time, an almost perfect result could be achievable!
I look forward to seing your trials, and your suggestions for improving it!
