   Soak the soybeans and one piece of kombu in about five times their volume
   of water overnight.  Discard soaking water and kombu, rinse the beans and
   cook in about 4C water w/the other piece of kombu.  Cook until soft, about
   four hours, and drain.  Coarsely chop the beans and kombu, then mix in all
   remaining ingredients until you get a medium stiff mess. Pack the mix
   tightly into an oven safe glass or stainless steel bowl and cover tightly
   w/foil, carefully sealing the edges.  Invert a shallow, heat resistant bowl
   on the bottom of a large stock pot or dutch oven. Pour in enough water to
   cover the bowl, then place the soysage over the bowl. Bring to a simmer,
   cover and steam about an hour and a half, checking occaionally to add water
   if needed.  Let cool and use.
