Online ordering not available; Menu reopens Sunday mid-day

Each spring, during the last week of April, the South River Miso folks take to the woods to gather Wild Leeks (Allium tricoccum, also called Ramps). They cook them along with Dandelion greens, dried nettles, and Maine coast sea vegetables. Then these are hand chopped and mixed together with Hearty Brown Rice Miso (already aged for two years) and Sweet Tasting Brown Rice Miso (already aged for three months). This mixture is then aged for one full summer.

Many people have told us that a broth made with this miso has helped them through illness. Others take it with them when traveling where good quality food is not always available. This miso is great for an instant soup broth in the workplace or for a "pick-me-up" instead of coffee. This Dandelion Leek Miso was a gifted to the Empress of Japan.

Ingredients: Deep well water, organic soybeans, organic brown rice, sun-dried sea salt, dandelion greens, wild leeks*, nettle greens, organic sea vegetables, and koji culture.
