Regarding the VERY SALTY miso it is to be noted that while a tsp of salt is all
salt, containing something like 1,000 mg of sodium, or something outrageous like
that, miso has only about 380 mg in the whole tsp.   still a lot, but not like a
boullion or commercial broth which is almost entirely salt.
    I find miso to be more mellow than commercial broths, and the salt in it to
be less harsh, but MUCH more flavorful.
    Thanks for the GREAT site, I really enjoyed it.   Kitty
