(One more post to end the year!)
I don’t know why I haven’t started to make homemade hoisin much earlier in my life. I made it for this past Friendsgiving and it was amazing! I used some of the leftovers the other day with steamed buns and duck breast. So good!!
So here is my recipe. It’s significantly better than the store-bought version!
- 6 umeboshi (Japanese pickled plum)
- 120 g brown sugar
- 100 g soy sauce
- 10 g rice wine vinegar
- 1 tsp sesame seeds, toasted
- 2 TBS 5 spice powder (my homemade 5 spice powder is technically 7 different spices)
- 1 tsp ketchup
- 50 g Chinese fermented black beans
Just blend everything in a VitaMix and then pass it!
