  2. Once the water boils, reduce the heat to simmer.

  3. Boil for 1 to 1.5 hours or until tender and partially removed from the pods.

FOR MAKING SOY SAUCE FERMENTED
  1. Take a pot that you won’t need anytime soon.

  5. Stir the mixture daily.

  6. When you will find the soybean slices have completely dissolved, strain the mixture with cheesecloth into bottles for storage.

OUR DINE TABLE
  1. I was really surprised to see that it is so simple to prepare. You just need a little time and care. Nowadays I don’t buy soy sauce, my grandfather whenever visits me, he carries a bottleful of homemade organic soy sauce for me which adds flavor to seafood, veggies, soups, meats, and noodles.
