South River Miso, Azuki Bean

Certified organic. Traditionally wood-fire & unpasteurized. Nourishing life for the human spirit since 1979. A one-year light Miso (Aged in wood for a minimum of 3 months). This soy-free miso features the beautiful red azuki bean, long valued in Asian folk traditions for nourishing the deep essential energies of the body. Ideal for seasoning light soups, sauces, and salad dressing. USDA organic. Certified by Baystate Organic Certifiers. Glass packaging insures the purity of our product. No GMOs. Unpasteurized. South River Miso is the only unpasteurized certified organic Miso that is entirely handcrafted in the centuries-old Japanese farmhouse tradition. Central to our process is the long, slow cooking of the beans by wood fire with a massive masonry stove. Our time-honored methods create the rich flavor and distinctive whole-grain texture common to all miso made before modern food processing. Each teaspoon contains millions of active, probiotic micro-organisms and enzymes which unlock the nutrition and full flavor of all foods. - Christian and Gaella Elwell. For more recipes please visit:
