Tokyo Turnip Misozuke

Description

Air dried Tokyo Turnips that have been fermented in a bed of 6 month old pumpkin and canellini-bean miso.

The turnips are a real adventure and have an incredibly complex flavour. They are sweet, salty and sour and very concentrated. A little goes a long way. We find these to be a real delicacy and are enjoying them as a condiment sliced very thinly over steamed rice. You can think of them as a vegan substitute for nigiri.

Note: The liquid from the turnips has soured the taste of the miso that they have been buried in. It’s 100% safe and edible, but tastes different to a regular miso. We use it as a component ingredient in salad dressings.
