Revered for centuries as the most famous miso in Japan and celebrated as the miso supplied to the Emperor of Japan for over one hundred years, this pure soya bean miso is a powerhouse of concentrated nutrition, with twice as much protein than either long aged Brown Rice or Barley Miso. It is produced by miso craftmen of five centuries, using large seasoned cedarwood kegs to fully mature for up to 3 years. As a result, Hatcho miso is also considered the most effective.
Dark and rich, this miso has a distinctive taste that can add an interesting new flavour to everyday cooking, especially soups, sauces and condiments.
How to use :
Hatcho miso savoury, robust flavour combines well with beans, gravies, baked and simmered dishes and vegetable soups and stews. May be substituted for salt. Dilute with cooking liquid before use.
Ingredients: Whole organic soybeans* (65%), water, sea salt, roasted barley flour*. *organically grown
Miso is a live product and ongoing fermentation may cause the lid to bulge. It will still be safe to consume. Harmless white yeasts may develop from exposure to air. Simply skim off.
