Can I eat this: Miso Paste edition
July 13, 2014 9:14 PM Subscribe
We have a container of this Miso paste
at the back of our fridge, but it's straight shiro rather than shiro + aka. The ingredients are water, soybeans, rice, salt - 2% alcohol by volume. It looks fine and smells great, and the texture seems normal, maybe a little dried out. There's a "best before" date of 30 June 2013, but no "expiry" date. Is there any reason I shouldn't use this to baste roasted vegetables?

Miso is fermented so... it seems like it should be fine?
If you all vote "no" I'll just make something else for dinner and get a new container next time I'm out... Veg are to supplement take-out udon which really should be eaten tonight; I am far too tired + lazy + pregnant to go to the store just for miso paste though!
(This is for spouse, I will likely have something else for dinner.)
