Almost Macrobiotic but perhaps mess of Miso

Two kilogram fresh Koji has been delivered recently by dhr uit of Kyoto Japan. Firstly the parcel traveled from city of Yonezawa (miso-maker) in Yamagata to Kyoto (export company). Secondaly 6 days later it got my address through a cargo plane and land network. [note 1]

It went something wrong. My order was another type of Koji which is dried and has long shelf life. Because of "fresh" it should be immediately consumed otherwise it might be useless. In another words "Gold that was discarded in the groove"

I gathered instantly all necessary tools and other ingredients before last saturday. This is the image report what i performed although never experienced. According to most of informations this making process will span several days. The result may fail therefore, I suppose. In the case of becaming edible miso a year later, then it would be miracle.


30 years old high-pressure pan. The part of pressure loosening is defect, But it works about 80 procent, i guess. Indeed soybeans were well cooked within 10 minutes after all. I took enough time, half an hour, to open the lid by way of safety.

First miso-trial date that you notice by the newspaper on saturday 5th march. I began to cook at 11: 45. Soybeans was in water whole night (12 ~ 15 hours). it finished at 15: 20 (phase 21). It took 3 hours 35 minutes. I will see the result a year later, saying `wait and see`. Almost Macrobiotic feature, but perhaps mess of Miso will be ....

1. Koji :Japanese word. necessary for miso, a kinds of yeast which is for bread. There is an English version in Wikipedia, however its writer may be a Chinese or someone who is an expert on China or East Asia. All language versions depend on such volunteer. All of texts is different in term of quality and quantity, and each nations have traditional way of life like that Sake Japanese rice wine cannot mis Koji.

** Many kinds of salt as well that I have not much idears.

And at home by coincedence with salts, there are several earphones which are nowadays used by millions of millions folks in combined with smartphones at every inch of corners in the world. Even for me, it's a little pleasure during walking with my participation of the 100st Four days march. All these 3 are not comfortable enough. Or say, it dose not stay in only left ear of mine. I wonder whether or not there are reasonable adjustable quality products.
