Maruya Hatcho Miso Co. Ltd. Miso Powder $14.95

Lucky number 8.

Hatcho miso couldn’t have a more auspicious name. It was made for the first time 800 years ago in a village called “Hatcho,” named after its proximity (870 meters, or roughly 8 city blocks) from Okazaki Castle, a royal residence in Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The number 8 is considered lucky in Japan, thanks to its infinite shape, but it’s clear there’s no luck involved in this company’s popularity. Maruya supplied the royal family’s miso from 1892 to 1954.

Not sure how you’d use it?

We test everything we sell. Here’s how we’d use this.


Mix this into our Japanese Potato Salad or miso butter to taste—we like miso butter with everything, but it’s particularly good with soft scrambled eggs and toast. Try powdered miso in dessert, as well; finish our Peanut Butter–Miso Cookies and Miso-Spiced Rum Bananas Foster with a sprinkle, or add the powder to taste directly into cookie dough. Use the powder as a rub on the pork for our Miso-Marinated Pork and Noodle Soup, and sprinkle on top as a finishing seasoning.
