Learn The Ins & Outs of Sweetening Your Chocolate With Only Fruit
In this class, we focus solely on making chocolate in the stone grinder sweetened with only fruit and veggie powders.
Want To Make An Amazing Sweetener Free Chocolate?
I’ve been making fruit sweetened chocolate for about 8 years now. When I first developed the dark chocolate recipe back in 2013, I didn’t think anyone else would be interested in it, but recently I have seen many people wanting to make chocolate without the use of processed, refined sweeteners, even coconut sugar.
Since then, I have developed three fruit sweetened chocolates; ‘red velvet’ milk, blonde and dark. These are super easy to make and the ingredients can be found rather easily on Amazon or via natural food suppliers.
In this 60 min class I’ll answer all your questions as we take a deep dive into how to make chocolate only sweetened with fruit and veggie powder. These chocolates are made using the stone grinder and the result is a silky smooth, deliciously sweet chocolate.
What you’ll learn…
What Is A Stone Grinder
If you’re entirely unfamiliar with a stone grinder, we’ll get into all the details in class. This method of making chocolate is the most traditional and has been used for centuries. Before electronic machines were used this was accomplished manually using a large stone, like a mortar and pestle, but huge! Luckily today we have various machines to choose from. I’ll talk about a few of them in class and demonstrate the ins and outs of it using my own grinder.
Which Ingredients To Use
Depending on whether you want to make dark, milk, white or blonde chocolate the ingredients and their ratios will vary. In this class we will go through my tried and true recipes for ‘red velvet’ milk, blonde and dark chocolates. I will talk you through why I choose the fruit powders I do and in what ratio they can be used.
A silky smooth consistency isn’t the only reason to grind your chocolate, there are other factors that come into play, such as viscosity and flavour development. Specifically where lighter shades of chocolate are concerned the grinding times (and ingredients ratios) are key to a lovely thick chocolate that can be used for enrobing, shelling or making chocolate bars.
Starting A Batch
We’ll start a batch of fruit sweetened chocolate in class so you can see exactly how easy it is. We’ll also cover some troubleshooting of common issues that might arise during the grind.
I’ve been teaching chocolate making in the grinder for about 8 years and have taken notice of the most common questions and issues that arise before, during and after a grind. I’ll address as many of those as possible in class, but cover them all in the accompanying class book.
