- Spray the stick blender blades with Isopropyl Alcohol and allow to air dry. Also ensure all other equipment is clean and as sanitary as possible
- Set out ingredients and equipment and prepare work surface
- Combine Phase A ingredients in large jug, cover and heat in microwave until around 75°C, and remove from microwave
- Combine Phase B ingredients in smaller jug (except Silc Oliv) and heat in microwave until around 75°C, then remove from microwave
- Add the Silc Oliv to the Phase B ingredients and stir in manually
- Check the temperature of both Phases and if they are both 70°C or just above combine with stirring (stick blender can do the job)
- You will see the water phase immediately turn milky when you add Phase B
- Mix intermittently during cool down to keep the mixture emulsified
- Add Phase C ingredients and give a quick blast to ensure they are well combined
- Continue with intermittent stick blending and manual stirring until the mixture has reached 25 - 30°C
