Soak the very dry nuts in a beneficiant quantity of cold water for 2 days. Keep it inside the fridge during the soaking so that the nuts do now not ferment. Most tiger nuts offered in Nigeria are sparkling and nicely hydrated so you’ll only need to soak those ones for some hours or overnight.
After the soaking, wash the nuts thoroughly and sort out the awful ones.
Put them to your kitchen blender and pour just sufficient water to assist the blades move. We want to make this milk as concentrated and attractive as possible, you can add more water later in case you wish.
At this time you could upload different components: coconut, sugar, ginger and other flavours of your desire and mix them collectively. I choose anything I consume/drink as herbal as feasible so I do not add any other factor to this drink. The natural taste of Tiger Nut Milk is so super, you do not want to modify it at all.
After blending, use a chiffon cloth or girls stocking (pantyhose) to separate the chaff from the drink. Of course, the pantyhose must be latest, very well washed with dish washing liquid.
Press the stocking to make certain you squeeze out all the milk from the chaff.
Put the dry chaff returned in the blender, upload more water and mix again. Then pressure with the chiffon material.
Repeat the procedure until all the milk has been extracted. I found that the milk I got the third time changed into too watery. So 2 times ought to be enough and keep an eye on the amount of water. As a manual, I were given 1.5 litres of tiger nut milk from 600g of soaked tiger nuts. Yours can also vary.
Pour the extracted milk into bottles and keep inside the fridge for up to three days. It need to remaining longer within the freezer.
