How to Prepare Irish Moss:
Rinse and clean well a handful of Moss – check for hidden sand and make sure you get out as much as possible.
Soak 6-18 hours in filtered water, at room temperature, rinsing a few more times. The Moss will turn a creamy white to
translucent colour, and feel slippery and soft. It will double in volume. Don’t worry about faint distinctive Moss smell,
it will be odourless and tasteless at end of process. Add 1 cup of water and drained moss to blender and blend till smooth and creamy.
You may now store the gelled moss in the fridge to use as needed. It will keep sealed in fridge for 2 – 3 weeks.
When you add the Moss to your recipe, for a more “set” result, it may take up to an hour in the fridge to fi rm up the dish. With its all natural ingredients the thickening eff ect may vary.
Use to thicken smoothies, raw desserts, soups, sauces, raw mousse, raw ice cream. Allergen Information: Manufactured in a vegan facility that processes tree nuts, but does not contain grains, gluten, soy, peanuts, eggs or dairy.
