Miso 101 at Brooklyn Botanic Gardens

  • Brooklyn Botanic Gardens 2100 Washington Avenue ( Administration Building Classroom 125 ) Brooklyn, NY, 11225 United States (map)

In this course we will cover the basic science behind making miso, why it is good for you, and how to make it yourself. Miso is a traditional Japanese product produced by fermenting soybeans with salt and the fungus Aspergillus oryzae, or koji. High in protein and rich in vitamins and minerals, miso has long played an important nutritional role in Japan. We will cover soy and non-soy misos in this class. If you are interested in DIY projects, Old World food preservation, gut health, or fermentation in general, this is the class for you!
