My Friend, My Thermomix
Ah, the wonderful world of Thermomix. This is my essential cooking buddy - which unbelievably allows me to make super-powder from dry and hard beads. As an example, my husband and I identified a black peppercorn in a market in Vietnam that we really liked. Black peppercorns are dried, unripe fruits that have been cooked but they're hard as rock. Put those in a Thermomix, blast to speed 10 and you're left with a powder so soft you can see clouds forming over the device. I couldn't harvest and produce my products without my Thermomix.
