Autumn Greetings from South River Miso

Cooler temperatures and colorful fall leaves grace the Northeast landscape where South River Miso is made. As the season changes in many parts of the country, our thoughts turn to warming and appetizing meals. Miso is the perfect healthy seasoning for dishes made with the abundant fall harvest of grains, roots, and greens.

Enjoy miso in soups, stews and stir fries as well as in marinades that tenderize and flavor fish and meats. Unpasteurized South River Miso is rich in naturally occurring probiotics and enzymes that aid in digestion and help to build strong immunity through the winter months.

Currently all ten of our unique varieties are available online at Visit our detailed web site to discover more about Miso and view our lively videos.
