Expert Tips

  • Maple and miso might sound like a strange combination, but the two flavors actually play really well together. Maple is subtle and relaxed, letting miso maintain its alpha status. While plain sweeteners will temper miso just fine, maple eases into the miso flavor profile and works like a secret weapon, adding laid-back sweetness without taking over.
