Tsurumiso Dried Rice Koji 500g
鶴味噌醸造 乾燥米こうじ 500g

Tsurumiso dried rice koji is a type of rice koji that has been dried for preservation. Koji is a type of fungus that is used in Japanese cuisine to ferment a variety of foods, including miso, sake, and soy sauce.

To make Tsurumiso dried rice koji, steamed rice is inoculated with koji spores and incubated until the koji fungus has grown and penetrated the rice grains. The resulting product is a type of malted rice that has a sweet and slightly nutty flavour.

Once the rice koji has matured, it is dried to preserve it for later use. Dried rice koji can be rehydrated by soaking it in water, then used in a variety of Japanese dishes, including sauces, marinades, and pickles. It is used to make miso, shio koji and even used for fermenting sake.
