1 cup dry soy beans (I buy in the bulk section at Winco for 71 cents a pound)
6 cups water
2 tsp vanilla
add sugar to taste. It should be a little sweet to the taste
(I did three batches to equal about a gallon and added less than 1/2 cup sugar).
Step1: Soak soy bean over night in a large bowl with lots of water about 10 - 16 hours.
Step2: Dump out old water and put soy beans and fresh water in blender for a few minutes.
Step3: Sieve the mixture trough a cheese cloth and recover the soy milk. The insoluble material which remains on the sieve is called okara, and can be used as an ingredient for bread making in place of flour.
Step4: Heat the soy milk till boiling point (watch because it will boil over if not careful) and continue boiling for about 5 to 10 minutes. After cooling, the soy milk is ready and can be kept in the fridge for another 3 days.If you put the soy milk in clean glass container it can last more than week.
Step 5: This is where you can added a 2 teaspoons of vanilla and sugar.
