How to Make Homemade Miso Using a Pressure Cooker

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 22 steps you must follow to make Homemade Miso Using a Pressure Cooker in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Rinse the soy beans, and soak them in plenty of water overnight. They will swell up to twice their size by the next day.
  • Step 2
  • Put the soy beans into twice their volume of water in a pressure cooker and bring to a boil. Skim off the white scum that rises to the surface.
  • Step 3
  • Put the perforated metal plate that comes with the pressure cooker on top. Lock the lid on and cook under pressure for 10 minutes, then leave to cool down naturally. *If you have a small pressure cooker, cook the soy beans in 2 batches.
  • Step 4
  • This is the fresh rice koji I ordered by mail and used this time. There are 2 bags containing 1.3 kg each. You can use dried rice koji instead!
  • Step 5
  • While the soy beans are cooking, mix the koji and salt together.
  • Step 6
  • Drain the cooking liquid from the cooked soy beans, and hold onto it to use later. *If you're cooking the soy beans in several batches, just keep the cooking liquid from the final batch.
  • Step 7
  • Let the soy beans cool a bit, and put them in a plastic bag. They'll be hot so wrap the bag in a towel and press down with your hands to mash them. The beans are very soft so this should be easy.
  • Step 8
  • Add the combined koji and salt from Step 5 to the mashed soy beans and mix well. Mix in some of the cooking liquid until the paste is about the consistency of hamburger mixture or about as soft as your earlobe.
  • Step 9
  • Line a large container or tub with a double layer of plastic bags. Roll the paste into apple sized balls (these are called miso balls) and throw them hard into the container. Press them in firmly to eliminate any air pockets.
  • Step 10
  • When all the miso balls have been put into the container, press down hard on the whole mass again while putting your weight into it to remove any air. Sprinkle a handful of salt on top evenly. (This is to prevent the surface from developing mold.)
  • Step 11
  • Squeeze the inner plastic bag closed while pushing out any air inside. Press a small lid or plate on top, add a weight on top of that and wrap and close the outer plastic bag over all. Cover with a lid.
  • Step 12
  • Wrap the whole container with another plastic bag. Leave it in a dark, cool place out of the sun.
  • Step 13
  • Here's the schedule from this point on:
  • Step 14
  • Mixing up from the bottom (1st time): Check on the miso after about 2 months to see if it has developed any mold! If it has, just remove the parts with the mold. Mix the whole thing up from the bottom after removing the moldy parts.
  • Step 15
  • Mixing up from the bottom (2nd time): Open up the miso 4 months after the first time you mixed it up! Mix it up from the bottom again.
  • Step 16
  • If the miso has matured enough when you mix it up the 2nd time you can start eating it, but it will become more delicious if you let it mature for a while longer.
  • Step 17
  • I made miso this time on February 3rd, the day of spring (Setsubun no Hi). I'm looking forward to how it will turn out.
  • Step 18
  • April 30th: The first mixing up! It's about 3 months after I made the miso. I opened the lid slowly since I was afraid it had developed mold.
  • Step 19
  • Looks so good! It's fluffy, and actually starting to smell like miso! It hadn't molded at all as I'd feared, and it's turned into miso. It's not yet edible at this point, though.
  • Step 20
  • I mixed it up from the bottom. To do this I took the plastic bag out and squeezed the miso over the bag. This way my hands are not in direct contact with the miso, so no bacteria gets into it.
  • Step 21
  • I returned the plastic bag to the container, and levelled out the surface with a wooden spatula. I closed up the plastic bags again as described above. I left it in a cool, dark place. I'll check on it again in September...maybe it will be ready to eat by then...
  • Step 22
  • End of August: It's matured into a delicious looking miso. It's ready to eat at this point. The top photo is of the miso at this stage.
