Warm Holiday Wishes from South River Miso

How wonderful to brighten the short dark days of winter by gathering with friends and family and sharing good food. Enjoy South River Miso as part of your festive and healthy holiday recipes. A high quality source of vegetable protein, our handcrafted organic miso is full of naturally occurring probiotics and enzymes. It adds savory richness to soups, vegetable, grain or bean dishes; is a tenderizer in marinade for meats and fish and a flavorful ingredient in dips, salad dressings and sauces. You can find lots of great miso recipes on our website.

Our Sampler Pack includes four varieties of miso and our own recipe booklet and makes a great holiday gift. Good health and good cheer to you during the holidays and in the coming New Year!
