This makes a very sticky gooey tofu, almost tofu taffy. it tends to stick to itself and everything else. Its a bit of an aquired taste...

I like this quite a lot, though I found it a bit too sweet as it was. I added some miso paste and was very happy with the end result. (Ate it with brown rice.) Thanks for sharing!
