Yet another batch of barley miso. I’m making more than ever, because it already seems like I don’t have enough for this year. I should have made more 2 years ago.

I’m using the standard recipe, but the korn koji is a little different this time. I made it with some tane koji starter that was at least 30 years old. It seemed to grow fine but not as profusely as usual. I expect it will make a good miso tho.

The small jar is also an experiment. My wife was making some sourdough bread using caraway and fennel seeds for flavor, and I got the bright idea of adding some to the small amount of mix that was left. Lo and behold – caraway miso!

Or we will see 2 years from now.

My own carrots are never enough or good enough – small, and lots of carrot fly larvae. This year was much better, but as usual, I bought bigger and better carrots from old friend Pelle. 

And took the best for fermentation. 


The result;


Half with garlic and caraway seeds,  the other half with garlic and ginger.
