Green Tea (Matcha) Spread

I have always wanted to make my own green tea spread so I decided to look for a recipe. And from one of my favourite green tea themed recipe books, I managed to find one! For the first time, instead of sharing a cake, cookie or bread recipe, I am sharing something different. It looks like I can invest some more time on spreads. 


Green Tea (Matcha) Spread
(makes approximately 360g of spread)

Ingredients: 
100g + 300g milk
20g green tea (matcha) powder
200g whipping cream
100g sugar (you can reduce the sugar to suit your preference)

Method - sterilise the jar:
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C.
  2. Wash you jar and lid in hot soapy water but do not dry them. Please do not put the lid into the oven if it is made of plastic.
  3. Put your jar standing upside down in a tray and pop it into the oven for 15 minutes.
Method - green tea (matcha) spread:
  1. In a saucepan, heat 100g milk until warm. Sift in the green tea powder and use a whisk to stir until smooth with no lumpy bits. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  2. Using the same saucepan, add the remaining milk, whipping cream and sugar. Cook under low heat until everything is combined together. Stir occasionally to avoid burning.
  3. Add the green tea mixture from step 1. Mix until everything is well combined, simmer to reduce the liquid and until it thickens like the consistency of a bowl of cream soup. As you cook, the colour of the spread will darken. Stir occasionally to avoid burning. Don't cook until it is like toast spread because it will continue to thicken once it cools down so do not overcook it.
  4. Transfer the green tea spread to your sterilised jar. Cool completely before closing with a lid. Keep it in the fridge and consume when you need to. The colour of the spread will fade away as time goes by, please consume all within 2-3 weeks.
And here's the video!
