This is a quick post, as I wanted to get this on the blog as a  Palatable Pantry addition.

It is my version of  hoisin,  made from scratch without  added  sugar.  You can use this instead of bottled hoisin in recipes. It should keep a week in the fridge, but  don’t be afraid to  pack small amounts in freezer bags for longer storage rather than having a jar go bad.

I love  Chinese and Asian  cooking, so this is  special to me and I am very  excited to share  it, and recipes using it.

Here is one posted recipe you can use it in- I will post more from my files as I get time.

If you are counting carbs, there is not a lot you can do about the  rice  paper wrapper, but you could wrap it inside lettuce leaves or something like steamed savoy cabbage leaves. There are also bean curd wrappers but those  might involve some carbs depending on the  package. You can find those in Asian grocers.
