Alright, I tried searching for an online store that sells it. It seems alot of the miso products are soups. Am I searching for a paste or liquid, red or white, mild or hot? What brand do you all suggest, that I would find used more often. I have a few soup recipes that call for it and don't specify. Alot of the brands are in Japanese, so that makes it difficult too. Also it can be made from different things, like soybeans, rice and barley...does it matter which kind? I'm such a miso newbie!
