I've got a jar of miso I keep trying to remember come dinner time, but it isn't an ordinary ingredient of mine so it just leaves my head when its time to cook. Maybe I'll try a slightly more western version with white mushrooms tonight.

After opening the bag, the fish flakes can be stored in the freezer for two or three months.

Sorry, but I don't think you get as lucky with the miso. I know it keeps in the refrigerator for two or three weeks, but I don't recall my Japanese cooking teacher saying that it can be frozen.

Meg - the kelp can be "reserved" for another use. The soup stock you made is called No. 1 stock because it is the best. But it is possible to make No. 2 stock with the reserved ingredients. No. 2 stock is much weaker than No. 1 stock, but it can be used to cook vegetables for added flavor, etc.. Directions for making No.2 stock: After you have made No. 1 stock, place the previously used kelp and fish flakes in the pan with 2-3 cups of cold water. Boil for 4-5 minutes, then strain. Also, when you strain the fish flakes for either stock, do not squeeze them to get out every drop of juice as it will add a harshness to the liquid.

Thanks for the tips, Stacey! I am lucky that for once my laziness coincided with the correct procedure - Ijust strained the fish flakes and didn't bother trying to get the last drops out as I was (as always) in a hurry!

I love the saltines of Miso and love using it as a spread. Is there a danger in using too much of it?

it takes a very special kind of person to be an effective nursing assistant. relax and you'll do fine. dirty clothes are thrown in after the patient has sometimes gotten food on their clothes and after they have gotten some feces or urine on them. certified nursing assistant cna work bakersfield ca
