Soy sauce is a key condiment in Asian cuisine, so it is a fixture on the table of Japanese restaurants. The process of making soy sauce is rather extensive, but it is also well worth the depth of flavor in the final product. This video demonstrates how soy sauce is fermented from a mixture of wheat, roasted soy beans, and lots of salt. The sauce is aged in oak barrels that add subtle notes of smokiness.
