In this course we will explore alternative uses for miso and koji.
Miso is a traditional Japanese product produced by fermenting soybeans with salt and the fungus Aspergillus oryzae called Koji. High in protein and rich in vitamins and minerals, miso played an important nutritional role in Japan. We will look at misozuke pickles, koji cured meats, miso cured eggs, amazake, and more.
