Homemade Soy Sauce – Project underway

I found some instructions online for making sun-brewed soy sauce at home. So far I have:

  • Found 2 pounds of organic soybeans
  • Cooked them
  • Mashed the cooked beans together with flour – made a dough
  • Separated the dough into flat patties
  • Left the patties out in my computer room to purposefully grow mold
  • Set them out in the sun to let them finish drying out
I guess that after the soybean cakes dry out, I’m supposed to put them in a bucket, cover them with a brine solution, and then set the bucket out in the sun for a couple months.
I’ll update on the progress from time to time.

Picture unrelated. Just wanted you to know that I'm not ALL work.
