How to make Natto...Natto Kin Spores
The process is a little difficult, but not too hard once you have completed the process a few times. It starts by inoculating cooked soybeans with the natto spores. This incubates in a warm place in serving size containers for 12 to 24 hours. Once the inoculation is complete you now have made natto-kin. Freeze extra containers, pull, and thaw for use.
