Mirin – Rice Cooking Wine

Mirin is a sweet Japanese cooking wine made from fermented brown rice.  Tastes kind of like sweet saki!  Used in broths, soups, sauces, stir fries, dips,  dressings and marinades.  Can also be used as a glaze for baked or grilled foods.

I use Eden Foods brand.  Check ingredient list and avoid brands with added corn or alcohol.  The list should simply say Water, Rice, Koji (or Aspergillus Oryzae) and Sea Salt.
