Emerald Cove Organic Pacific Arame
Emerald Cove's Organic Pacific Aram is an edible ocean plant. Although packaged arame is similar to hijiki in appearance, arame is a species of kelp, and more closely related wakame and kombu. Arame has a sweet, mild flavor and a crisp testure. Emerald Cove Organic Arame is gathered off the Ise peninsula, the site of one of Japan's most famous shrines. It grows approximately 20 feet below the tide level, and is harvested in late summer by women divers. After harvesting, arame is sun-dried, washed, and soaked in fresh water, then steamed and soaked in the still-hot cooking water for as long as twelve hours. The arame is then drained, pressed, cut into slivers and sun-dried a final time before packaging.
