Nomura-san's miso is some of the best we have ever tried. His commitment to his koji for each miso is a testament to his fine condiments. This wonderful awase miso is what they called a mixed miso, which is something of a cross between white and red miso. Nomura-san ages this miso for one and a half years. The flavor is similar to red, but more mellow and less salty, which works perfectly with subtle flavors. One of our favorite ways to use this product is in a miso soup with eggplant or clams (or any other briny seafood). Keep refrigerated.
Ingredients: rice, barley (wheat), soybean, salt
Shipping Notes: The miso is shipped with a cold pack to keep it cool during shipping. It is fine if the cold pack melts in transit, just place the miso in the refrigerator upon arrival.
