Speaker: Black mushroom comes in a variety of different sizes and thicknesses and the time and variation in soaking is somewhere like 20-45 minutes, because the fact is that each one have different thicknesses and so on. What you are seeing in here is pretty much an average cause or average size of the black mushroom, but whatever decided you have bought mushroom, you must soak them in water. You just soak them in water. It expands, maybe one-and-half time the size, but more importantly is to realize that you must remove the stem from the mushroom before cut into the slice to what your recipe requires.
This is a Chinese black vinegar. There really isn't any vinegar like that in the market or even close to it. It is manufactured in China, and the province that produce this particular product is Guaugzhou ,and of course, the idea using this black vinegar is to have a malty taste and yet very soothing in many of the recipe, and we could use this not only as a marinate, but use as dipping sauce as well.
Chili paste with garlic. This is one of the most popular spicy ingredients in Chinese cooking. It comprise of chili, garlic, oil and salt. Let me show you the consistency of this product. It's very pasty and very colorful. For the color is contributed from the chili and is used in many different recipe. It's also used as a dipping sauce as well.
The chili oil that we are going to use in our recipe as you can see, is kind of a thick but basically is comprised of a lot of chili pepper and lot of cooking oil, but we do not wants you to make it in your own kitchen, because the fume, the smoky fume will kind of probably into your kitchen and you are going to be started coughing and it's really not worth it.
Dry chili peppers, another ingredient used to make the dish hot in many of the Chinese dishes. It is usually comes in the dry form. Therefore you must soak them in the water and usually they are maybe one and four times particular the dry form and many of the dishes that we use to either use it as a garnish or as a marinate, and many time we ask to stir fry the pepper into blacken so they help decorate the purpose for the particular recipe.
Clover comes in a dry form and usually they come in this packet of two or three ounces, but whatever you need to do is you need to soak them in water for about half an hour or so, so it gets into this condition here. As you could see they are this kind of a springy like when you soak them, but more importantly to understand the problem may we encounter is that the clover is grown on the tree so therefore there is a comb in there, you must soak and then possibly remove it if it is too hot.
