Mirin is a type of rice wine with a naturally high sugar content. It is often used to season Japanese dishes and is sometimes mixed with other ingredients and consumed as a beverage. It is mildly alcoholic and tastes like a milder, sweeter form of sake.
Mikawa Mirin is made in Mikawa, a Japanese province known for its fine mirin. Clearspring Organic Mikawa Mirin is made by Japanese producers who have perfected the traditional process and have been producing mirin for several generations. This ensures that every bottle of this mirin is true to mirin’s original taste and quality.
You’ll notice the difference when you take a sip of this Organic Mikawa Mirin. Clearspring uses a combination of both sweet and regular rice, and allows the steamed rice to ferment for months.
True mirin, like Clearspring Mikawa Mirin, is produced and aged properly, and develops a beautiful amber colour and a natural sweetness with a hint of umami.
Mirin is best used in Japanese dishes like miso soup, glazed tofu, vegetable ramen and stir-fried vegetables. It may also be used to create sauces and marinades. It is a key ingredient in soba, teriyaki sauce and sushi rice.
Sweet rice (52%), water, cultured rice.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can kids eat food seasoned with mirin?
Some people would try to reduce the alcohol content by boiling the mirin before serving, but as a general rule, it is best to keep alcohol away from children. Cooking might allow some alcohol in mirin to evaporate, but it will not completely be gone without altering the taste and texture of mirin.
