Amazake is a traditional, Japanese sweet drink made from fermented rice or sake lees. Using a process similar to making sake, koji (fermenting microorganism) is combined with cooled whole grain rice to break down the carbohydrates, resulting in a naturally sweet drink. Many Shinto shrines in Japan offer amazake as part of the New Year celebrations, but it can also be enjoyed any time of year. This brown rice amazake features a rich flavor with just the right amount of thickness and sweetness.
Ichijyu Ichisai (“one soup, one dish”) is a simple, traditional Japanese meal consisting of a bowl of miso soup and one side dish made with seasonal ingredients served with pickles and a bowl of rice. Since its founding in 1911, Yamato Soy Sauce Miso and their local food craftsmen have been incorporating live enzymes in their products to create “one soup, one dish, one koji'' using domestic ingredients and traditional manufacturing methods.
Suggested uses: Extremely versatile, enjoy as a drink, sauce or seasoning. Make a drink by diluting in a 1:3 ratio with hot, cold or carbonated water, milk, soy milk or even tomato juice. Use to make a latte or add a piece of ginger for extra flavor. Use as a spread on toast instead of jam or with cream cheese, or add to yogurt or ice cream. Use as a sugar substitute (1 Tbsp sugar = 40g amazake) when cooking to add a bit of sweetness to dishes such as Japanese omelets, pancakes and simmered dishes. Mix 1:1 amazake:miso to create a pickling base for meat or fish. Mix 3:2 amazake:ponzu or 3:1 amazake:soy sauce with ground sesame seeds to make a sesame dressing. Mix 1:1 amazake:chopped umeboshi (pickled Japanese plum) to make a vegetable dip.
