Spring Greetings from South River Miso
The awakening of the earth in the spring brings renewed life to our senses. We watch with awe as fresh
green sprouts emerge, seeking the light. Shedding the heaviness of winter, we enjoy tender young
vegetables and multi-colored salads. Miso is the perfect healthy seasoning for salad dressings, spreads
and dips, for marinating meat and fish for the grill and many other recipes
. With its plentiful enzymes
and naturally occurring digestive-friendly probiotics, miso is an essential ancient food for modern times.
