Irish moss is a variety of red algae known for its gelling properties (it can be used to replace other gelling agents). It is rich in minerals, as are all algae. It is also rich in nutrients and antioxidants.
Iodine aromas are very present. It may be powdered to replace salt in culinary preparations.
Rehydrate the sea moss around 15 minutes in lukewarm water before use. Or fry for a crispy chips!
Hand harvested in the Gaspé area.
