You may know of MISO since it can be said to be one of the most well-known Japanese condiments, but did you know they can be homemade very easily?? You can make MISO by simply mixing mashed soybeans, malt, and salt and letting it ferment. You will be surprised by how much it changes its taste while it ferments and ages!
This will be a class focusing on the introduction to MISO (it’s history, sampling different types of MISO, how to consume other than MISO soups etc), hands-on MISO making, MISO ball making (quick MISO soup ball) accompanied with MISO soup, rice ball and MISO-marinated side dish lunch.
You will be bringing home about 700 to 800g of MISO-to-be which you are to store it in a dark cool space, let it ferment and you will get your very own homemade MISO after about 3 to 4 months. (no hassle! Just let the tiny micro-organisms do their job!)
Once you learn to make this basic MISO, you can always explore by making them with other beans ie chickpeas, black beans, lentils, or any other beans.
So let’s get started!!
