[ Jin Shofu Preparation Instructions ]
Combine 1 part Jin Shofu to 3 or 4 parts water and mix thoroughly.

You may need to experiment to obtain the correct consistency for your project. More water will make a thinner paste and longer cooking time will thicken the paste.

Place this mixture over a low flame and stir constantly. When the solution becomes clear, remove it from the heat and let it cool to room temperature before using.

For a finer paste, strain through a norikoshi strainer.

Store prepared Jin Shofu in a sealed glass or plastic container in the refrigerator. Any mold that grows can simply be scraped off the top.
