You might have a friend or two with that name, but in the end, you’re eating a fungus that’s a classic ingredient in many Japanese foods. It’s used for Sake, miso, rice wine vinegar, but there’s more to it. It’s also now being made at home in combination with other foods. It’s like a seasoning element that’ll taste unlike your typical herbs, spices, and condiments. There’s a recipe guide as well that tells you how to make it and use it. (Japantimes – Koji)
