Soy-Sub update Aug 2012
Updated the list of soy sauce substitutes (Soy-Sub) to include a link to a possible recipe that I'm keen to try and to include a photo of this Rice based Soy-Sub that I get from Japan.
The ingredients list is Rice and Salt, and it is somehow fermented to make a taste very close to a light soy sauce. This is by far the best soy-sub I've ever had. It's really delicious, acts like soy sauce when you cook with it, but is very hard to come by.
However, I've just discovered a service called JapanOnly, which claims to be able to acquire those rare and hard to find Japan only goods and send them to you for a small fee. If they can get this sauce, it will be well worth it. Fingers Crossed.
I'm constantly updating the Soy-Sub list whenever I find some new soy-free-soy-sauce, so keep an eye on it. It's not just about soy-sub recipes, but also about what soy sauce does and why some soy-sub works sometimes and not others.
