    Saved: I bought the nigari where I bought my soy milk maker - Soya Power, online, out of Tennessee.

    Soframiz: I made the soymilk by soaking dried soy beans over night in water, draining then using my soy milk maker. I just put the beans, water and salt in the maker, and in 20 minutes I have fresh soy milk.

    With a soy milk maker - soak the beans overnight and process in the machine with water and a touch of salt

    Ok... This sounds easier than my other recipe. How do you make your soy milk?
