The best tofu in the world is homemade tofu! Make your own delicious tofu with the Mitoku Home Tofu Kit. Handcrafted from the finest Japanese cypress wood, this kit has enough nigari to make 24 blocks of fresh tofu.
One of the hidden benefits in making your own tofu is "okara," the solids that are left after the soy milk has been strained off. It is a very nutritious, high-fiber food, containing a significant amount of the protein content of the soybeans. Okara can be used for croquettes, fritters, okara crepes, vinegared or sauteed okara, or okara breads and muffins. And of course you'll have fresh tofu to simmer, grill, deep-fry, make tofu burgers and cutlets; tofu sauces, spreads, dips & dressings; chilled tofu shakes, smoothies, creams, and puddings.
The beauty and fragrance of Japanese cypress wood or hinoki has been highly appreciated for centuries for its subtle fragrance, as well as for the beautiful appearance of the wood's natural grain. The distinctive aroma of Japanese cypress derives from a naturally occurring substance in the resin known in Japanese as "hinoki-jushi." This not only has a pleasing, refreshing aroma, but also has been recognized as possessing excellent natural antibiotic properties. Thus Japanese cypress has been used for many centuries in making all kinds of kitchen utensils, as well as drinking cups, an oke (Hinoki wooden pail), and even Japanese hot-tub-style baths.
