Maybe you have heard of Miso in movies or books, or maybe you have tasted this flavor in Japanese cooking or through in Chinese cooking.
The Japanese enjoy warm miso soup to stimulate digestion and give themselves the energy for their day. Miso is fermented grain with salt and a fungus, called kojikin. Miso is usually made from rice, soybeans, or barley in addition to salt and kojikin. Miso is not new. It has been a traditional part of the Japanese culture for many centuries now.
