      Mixed with equal part peanut butter it makes a great vegetable dip for carrots and such.

      I like to dissolve my miso into hot water then add a little butter and lemon juice. It's salty, rich, bright, and has tons of umami. Just a great, comforting soup to have in winter.

      How does it stay at room temp for a year and not go bad? Salt is the preservative but it can hold for that long? And afterwards last almost forever?

      Is there a way to ferment your miso for a shorter time, like a few weeks perhaps?

                    Hey Brad - how about you make tofu??? Something I've always wanted to do - got a book on it, but still haven't given it a try - but I bet it would be a GREAT episode! BTW folks in this corner of the tri-state area say "warder" and "warsh" - not just NJ. We love our distinctive accent!! :-D

                                    0:16 - Amiel as a baby man - so sweet! I love Brad's odd relationship with Vincent/Vinny. It's strangely akin to his relationship with us, as when he looks at/talks to Vinny, he's talking to us.

                                      I will probably won't make any of this but love his energy.

                                        Oh my gosh I just pulled my first Miso with white beans out of the crock and I'm so proud of myself! I let it go 8-12 months (can't remember lol) and it's soooo good. Though I did mess up the salt so it's pretty salty; just don't add salt to whatever I'm making lol.
