Pickled vegetable misoni

This dish has been passed around the Gujo City area and consists of boiling salty soybean miso called "gujo miso" with niboshi (baby sardine) dashi in a pot and adding pickled Napa cabbage slices. Our wise ancestors created this dish in order to not let anything go to waste during cold winters, when ingredients were scarce. People still eat it at home today and now make their own variations, such as adding meat; it goes incredibly well with rice, too.
