Strained out soy milk through cheese cloth. Excess pulp is called okara. The liquid is the soy milk! Tastes fresh!

Line the strainer with cheesecloth. I only had a small bag cloth so I used an unopened meshy cleaning cloth.

Added the coagulant- in this case i used Epsom salt. The milk will start to clump.

Poured coagulated milk in ghetto tofu press. I used a strainer with a bowl underneath.

After about 30 minutes the tofu was pretty solid! Still a bit too soft to my liking but I was impatient and hungry!
