Do you have home-made shio-koji in your refrigerator? If not, summer is the time to make it, and enjoy using it to pickle summer vegetables. Here is the link to the shio-koji recipe. https://hirokoskitchen.com/2012/06/shio-koji-recipe/
Recently I have added Korean Gochugaru in my shio-koji pickling base. Gochugaru is hot pepper flakes. It is not just hot. Gochugaru comes with sweet and fruity taste. The pair produces exciting pickles which I cannot stop snacking on.
I made another version with the addition of miso. This was a great hit for the gathering. The miso which I use is made in America. It is Miso Master brand: Non-GMO, gluten-free, organic, kosher. My shio-koji pickling venture continues.
