Suggested Use

Basic Prep

Our wild Alaria comes to you without processing or washing out any of its mineral richness. Please check for occasional tiny hidden pebbles or shells in the fronds. 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.

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 midrib 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° will also reduce usual cooking time by 5-10 min.

Alaria in Soups

  • A mild, smooth taste that compliments most grain, bean or broth-based soups.
  • Turns a delicate green color when cooked.
  • Soft textured frond, crunch of midrib, adds variety.
  • Add 5 inch strip, whole or chopped, per qt. of liquid.
  • Cooks in about 20 min. See basic prep for quicker cooking.
  • May be substituted for Japanese Wakame, but needs a little more cooking time.

Other Ingredients

Low temperature dried alaria.

Good and tasty but not edible as it is

Posted by 5037144619483450784 on Dec 04, 2016

It might be a substitution for Japanese wakame, but it is not edible - not suitable for snacks ans salads, only for soups and cooking, The weeds are too big and too hard, it's very difficult to cut it to pieces and impossible to rear with your hands.

Save from the 'East Coast' ;

Posted by Reviewer1411888 on Jan 31, 2013

The Wakame Vegetable has been a fairly 'mew' addition to my choice of spices. Once I got used to the 'flavor' it has become a vaforite, in soup's & salad's. I pay special attention to where it is harvested & will only purchase Sea Vegetables from our East Coast. Taking into cosideration the desaster & it's posible affects on Sea Vegetables form the Earthquakes in other parts of the Pacific.

Wakame

Posted by Reviewer2033686 on Oct 10, 2012

Wakame seaweed is an excellent source of iodine and other minerals. I am a vegetarian and do not eat fish. This is a fantastic way for me to supplement my diet with omega 3.
