I never thought that seitan could be so huge ...

So he's got the bowl of the hobart out, and he's massaging seitan. And what a seitan. That thing is easily the size of his torso, and he's going at that mass with vigour. Even the olive seitan is small in comparison. And the thing is that it's been well over a year since Boss Man has embarked on such a procedure. It's a lot of work, and I can imagine that it'd take a fair bit out of you, even if you are used to lifting heavy pots and the like.

Oh. And PS? He's not using vital wheat gluten. He's starting from scratch, with flour, and washing off the starch. Y'know how the logo has the 100% Hardcore written underneath the meditating cow? Well, now you know why. Massaging a mass of seitan that's half the size of your torso, by hand, and washing off the starch and the rest from scratch sound as hardcore as you can get.

But wait, there's more. He's got visions of stuffing dancing in his head. He mentioned something about rolling it out or stretching it out, stuffing it with more goodies, then wrapping it in yuba or something, and then roasting the whole thing slow and steady.

I don't know what it's going to end up as, but whatever it is, it'll be epic. Just thought I'd give everyone a sneak peek. Will have pictures of the raw stuff shortly.
