      Maine Coast Sea Vegetables Alaria (56 g)

      Maine Coast Sea Vegetable's Alaria is biologically and nutritionally very similar to Japaneses wakame (Undaria pinatifida.) In fact, it is so similar to its cousin of the pacific that Maine Coast Sea Vegetable refers to it as "Wild Atlantic Wakame." Alaria, however, provides a more wild, yet dlicate taste and needs a longer cooking time than wakame. It is Maine Coast Sea Vegetable's preferred sea vegetable for miso soup. Whole-leaf Alaria can also be marinated, blanched or steamed for use in salads, or quick roasted and enjoyed as "chips."

      Powdered Alaria is a great addition to green drinks (try mixing it with kelp and dulse powder) or any energy drink that needs mineral fortification (particularly calcium). Alaria powder is also delicious added to your favorite soup recipe or simply add it to a cup of hot water for a mineral-rich broth. Alaria's mild flavor profile allows it to blend in with many other ingredients without overwhelming them.

      Alaria is a good dietary source of Vitamin A, [beta carotene], iron, potassium, magnesium, chlorophyll, enzymes, trace elements, Vitamin B's and dietary fiber.

      Maine Coast Sea Vegetable's Alaria comes to you without processing or washing out any if its mineral richness. Please check for occasional tiny hidden pebbles or shells in the fonds. Some plants may be partially covered with a white powder of natural salts and sugars that precipitate from their cells during storage. To minimize, seal unused plants in this ziplock out of sunlight, heat or moisture.

      Suggested Use

      Alaria is at its best cooked, but the thin edges of the frond will be tender before the central midrib. To reduce cooking time (usually 20 min.), cut out these midribs altogether, or cook them separately. Or pressure cook the whole plant for 5-6 min. Pre-soaking for 1-12 hrs. or pre-roasting for 3 min. at 300 degrees will also reduce usual cooking time by 5-10 min.
