Each spring, during the last week of April, we take to the woods to gather Wild Leeks (Allium tricoccum, also called Ramps). We 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.
One friend even gave
Dandelion Leek Miso as a gift to the Empress of Japan.

— My name is Keith. I was just calling because I had the great fortune to find your Dandelion
Leek miso at my local co-op up here in Maine and I just wanted to thank you for renewing my faith in humanity. That’s pretty much that. Continued success to you and the crew. Thanks.
I recently ordered 4 jars of your miso and sampled the Dandelion Leek Miso last night. WOW! I was blown away with HOW FABULOUS IT IS! The New York Times article [see NYT, April 11, 2007, ed.] did not do it justice. It is so rich, full-bodied, winey, savory, satisfying, and amazing. I just hadsome with my vegetables as a dip, and loved it. I am really looking forward to trying all the others I ordered. Thank you so much for making such a wonderful product and bringing so much pleasure and delight into my life.
Best wishes, - J. U., Dedham, MA
