1 1/3

Sea salt

2

2

Avanti Golden Spice
Or 2 t turmeric
¼
Cup
Sesame or hemp seeds
optional

Prep out the ginger.  Since it’s organic you don’t have to discard all the peels.  You want 1 quart of prepped organic ginger.  And scraps can go into the compost, or scattered as mulch in your garden.  Use a strong blender to grind all the ingredients well.  Don’t over work the blender.  You don’t want to create heat that could destroy the active cultures in the miso and vinegar.  Leave in the covered blender jar at room temperature for several hours or over night.  Blend again.  Pack into clean glass jars.  Leave at room temp for 2 days.  Shake the jars twice daily.  Transfer to the fridge.  Fermented foods keep in the fridge for quite some time.  

*NOTE:  use 1/3 cup each white and red miso for a richer flavor 

Use as a flavoring agent for almost everything.  Soups, stews, braises, sauces, as a rub or to add flavor when cooking rice, beans, grains or vegetables.  It’s also a great addition to pickle making since it brings active culture to any mix you’re making.  Check out how we used it in Avanti Fermented Giardinera & Avanti Garden Chili HOT Sauce too.  Below are serving suggestions.
