Koji Cucumbers

These sliced pickles incorporate fresh koji into the lacto-pickle brine creating a truly unique earthy, yet floral, complexity of flavours. This is the ultimate pickle.

If you didn’t know, koji is a sporulating mould known as Aspergillus oryzae. It has been bred for hundreds of years for the production of garums, miso & amazake. And in turn rice vinegar & sake. 

Here at Scratch we inoculate our own koji spores in a cedar cabinet. We can supply fresh koji in limited amounts should you want to get your hands on some.
