Details:

Mitoku Snow-Dried Tofu is hand-crafted in the snowy highlands of central Japan by one of the last families who still adhere to traditional methods. The result is an all natural, delicious and concentrated convenience food that stores well and readily absorbs flavors. The Takagi family starts by freezing fresh tofu on bamboo trays overnight, which turns about 86 percent of the water to ice. The protein, minerals, and other solids congeal into a firm, lacy network. The following morning, workers begin the tedious task of stringing pieces of frozen tofu with braided rice straw. For about 20 days the tied frozen tofu blocks are hung from wooden frames in an open shed. They are left to twist and sway in the wind, until aged and dried. Mitoku Snow-Dried Tofu is truly an exceptional, quality product.Mitoku Snow-Dried Tofu is hand-crafted in the snowy highlands of central Japan by one of the last families who still adhere to traditional methods.
