White Chestnut Miso

Description

This is a young white miso with a delicate and fragrant flavour profile.

The chestnuts hail from Seven Springs Farm in beautiful Lorinna and were hand-shelled by yours truly on a cold wintry night in June.

We’re enjoying it as a wonderful companion to dressings and mild creamy sauces but it’s also magnificent on its own in a cup of hot water.

Last night we added some to some sweet sugarloaf cabbage from Rocky Top Farm. We slowly cooked the cabbage down with the miso and it was 💯!

This ferment is most definitely a labour of love and stocks are in short supply.
