Soak your beans overnight, covered. At room temp for the first 3 or so hours, the. In the fridge.
Rinse your beans about 6-8 times. They might still bubble some like mine are here.
Rinse again, drain, place in pot and cover with clean, warm water. Turn stove onto a medium low heat.
Gather your ingredients for seasoning while you let the beans cook for a couple hours. Fruit vinegar and black sesame seeds can be obtained from your local asian market.
She the beans are soft but have at least another 20 minutes to go add your Goji berries and your spices. You can also add 2tbsp of honey to start the sweetening.
Just think, this is going to become dessert!
Keep stirring throughout. We don't want this to burn. When the beans look about like this, add the vinegar and start to add the honey a Tbsp at a time. Stir thoroughly and taste after each addition
You should still taste the earthiness of the beans as well as their inherent sweetness and flavor through the additional sweetening. It should never just taste like however and nothing but.
Let cool. This will help the beans thicken in preparation for baking, etc. My next guide will show how to use this paste to make asian mooncakes. :)
