On today’s show, we go into the kitchen to learn how to make miso with Yuri Baxter-Neal, founder of Life Sampling PDX. Yuri invited me into her kitchen to make miso with her. For the first half of the show, you’ll hear the sounds of miso making as Yuri and I discuss fermentation, life, types of miso, and Japanese miso adages. Then we'll hear an interview by Melinda Hemmelgarm of Food Slueth Radio with Leah Penniman of Soul Fire Farm about her work and her book Farming While Black.

If you want to learn how to make miso, visit or email Yuri at to schedule or attend a workshop.

Ready to try miso making on your own? You can find locally made Koji by emailing or calling Jorinji (, 503-236-9965).
