Spicy Miso Paste with Chives and Leeks instructions
- Sterilize the jar. For careful sterilization, boil the jar and lid. Or, to save time, simply wipe inside of jar and lid with alcohol, like I do..
- To extend the shelf life, before mincing, carefully remove excess water from the thoroughly washed chives and leeks with a paper towel, and mince on a dried surface..
- There's no need to cook the chives or leeks. Mince the garlic, and lightly grind sesame seeds with a mortar and pestle..
- Mix together all ingredients marked ● until all the ingredients blend together. Add doubanjiang to taste..
- Mix in the chives, leeks, and garlic, until the ingredients are evenly blended..
- Transfer to the sterilized jar. This amount usually gets eaten up at one meal, so doubling the recipe guarantees enough for later use..
- Freshly prepared, this paste has a sharp salty taste and the flavors will not be settled. It's best when used after 12 to 24 hours..
- Use a sterilized spoon when serving and store in the refrigerator. We consume this within 2 weeks. After that much time, it's usually all eaten up!.
- It goes well with Chinese stir-fry dishes, seasoning for soup, or as topping on fresh vegetables. Try it with pot stickers or Chinese dumplings. Or, snack on it as a side dish with beer or sake..
- When I tried it on freshly steamed rice, I was completely stuffed..
