Mad for Miso

Miso is a fermented bean paste that hails from Japan and is well-loved for its decadent umami flavor. It’s also an tradition of fermentation, which is a testament to the intelligence of age-old processes, the wonders of collaboration with nature, and the eagerness of microorganisms to thrive. Miso can be made using a variety of different grains and legumes as well as be used to flavor everything from soups to marinades and salad dressings.
