Miso Fudge

The Ingredients Consultancy are lucky to work closely with Hanamaruki, the second largest miso producer in the world, with the best miso on the market

Miso is a well known ingredient for its many uses:

  • Salt reduction

  • Flavour enhancement, through its high level of glutamic acid (Umami)

  • Meat tenderisation, Contains enzymes which break down the long protein chains resulting in a much more tender product.

I have recently been experimenting with the use of miso in a number of applications, some including sweets / desserts and below is the recipe I came up with for quite possibly one the best fudges I have tried!

The use of miso in the fudge gives a salty flavour, but also a deep savoury / earthy note which compliments the chocolate wonderfully.

I also added the zest of one orange, this added a nice bit of citrus sweetness to the fudge which really highlighted the sweet and salty combination.
