Soy-free, gluten-free fabulousness: South River Miso's Azuki Tamari

Soy free, gluten free "soy" sauce? It's true!

The friendly folks at South River Miso make a soy-free, gluten-free tamari! Miracle of miracles.

Tamari is the liquid collected from the vats used to make miso. Normally, it is made with soy. But South River Miso collects tamari from the vats used to make their delicious azuki bean miso, and voila! Azuki tamari. According to the friendly customer service representative that responded to my email inquiry, the stock of azuki tamari is almost gone, and they will be making a chickpea tamari next. I was assured that both the azuki miso and chickpea miso are completely soy-free and gluten-free, so you can buy it with confidence if you have intolerances or allergies to either!

So, rejoice! And check out their website and go order a bottle. It is pricy, but worth it. I am currently waiting for my bottle to come in the mail! If you've never tried any of the South River Miso products, I would highly recommend them. I've never had the opportunity to try their soy misos, but I have been a fan of their chickpea and azuki misos for quite some time now. Many food co-ops and natural grocers carry their products, and you can order all their misos, including special misos, through their online store. I ordered a tasty looking jar of special Garlic Red Pepper Chickpea Miso, and a charming little book of miso recipes.

Yay! Soy-free, gluten-free tamari!
