making tofu...

my local tofu shop.. they make DELICIOUS tofu here, and for 100yen, (50p/$1.20) i usually walk away with a whole bag! you can see the machines used to boil up the beans and then separate the milk from the ....bits you don't want (okara) then they add nigiri to make the curd. the man in the corner, he's the boss, is frying tofu balls, which i was lucky enough today, to eat hot with soy sauce, if you come when they are frying they usually give you a snack. hot, fresh soy milk is also very good!
freshly made tofu, and you can just see, in the top left corner, the tofu in the vat of water.
