Chinese Red Bean Paste

admin's picture
Well, what I did with this Red Bean Paste with was to add a few new flavors to the old classic Chinese recipe. Red Bean Paste is my favorite type of cooking and I have done my best for this one. Don't blame me if you feel like thanking me in person for this!
Ingredients
  Dried tangerine peel piece 1
  Red beans 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Chinese)
  Sugar 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Lard 6 Tablespoon
Directions

1. Soak tangerine peel; then shred fine.
2. Place red beans, tangerine peel and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer, covered, until soft (about 1 hour).
3. Transfer beans and their cooking water to a blender and blend at high speed. Then put in a cheesecloth square and squeeze out as much of the liquid as possible. Reserve the mash, discarding the liquid.
4. Bring sugar and remaining water to a boil. Then cook, stirring, over medium heat until the mixture spins a thin thread when a small amount is dropped from the tip of a spoon (3 to 4 minutes).
5. Stir in mash and lard. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is thick and pudding-like.
