Help! How do I make soy flour?greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread
I have 50# soy beans. I can't seem to find info how long to cook, how to dry, and what is the best way to dry them. Or can I just grind them as they are for the flour? Help!

Soak your soybeans overnight and throw out
that water. There is a water soluble substance
that needs to be removed at this point. Cook
the beans for 2 hours on a low heat.
For flour you need a grain grinder. You grind
the dry beans not the cooked beans. Soy is one
of the more difficult foods to grind. Very
You can grind the cooked beans in a meat
grinder, spread them out on a screen and dry
them. This can be used like textured potein.

Thanks for the info Spider. One question, do I grind the soy beans used for flour uncooked-raw or, after boiling? What is the best way to dry them? thanks

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE METAL BURRS IN THE GRINDER!! the soybeans are SO OILY that your stones will not be the same again for weeks!!

Thanks Chuck and Spider. For some reason getting the answer as to use raw or cooked soy beans has been almost impossible. Every other answer I've found in cookbooks on the subject. Thanks again.
