ITEM ID: #3870


Miso is an essential ingredient in Japanese cuisine, made from soy beans fermented with salt and rice koji mould. Barley miso is different in that it is not made with rice koji, but unblended barley which gives it a dark colour and a rich and salty taste. The process of fermentation can take between one and three years and the longer it takes, the richer the taste and darker the colour. Barley miso is called mugi miso in Japanese and is particularly popular in rural areas and winter due to its hearty nature.

How To Use

Use this miso as:
• A seasoning for rich soups, stews and sauces.
• In miso soup for a traditional Japanese side dish.
• On vegetables for extra flavour.

My first time purchasing this and I really like it.
Perfect for marinades, miso soup etc.
A miso that can be for many different recipes, quite gentle in flavour.
