Great product!

Great to be able to buy a quality kombu in the UK at a reasonable price. I use this to make cold-pressed dashi stock along side some dried shitake mushrooms. (Simply place a couple pieces of kombu in a large mason jar with water and throw in a few dried mushrooms and leave overnight in fridge.) I would recommend this product highly!

Great quality

Great for soup stock, and I’ve started cutting it up into small strips and eating it too. Great quality.

The Magic of Kombu

Combined with dried shiitake mushrooms, Kombu makes the most delicious dashi stock. I often soak the kombu and shiitake overnight for an even more robust rich umami flavour. Although traditionally used for soup stocks, salads, I always use kombu to soak my dried beans overnight and pressure cook with the kombu to make the beans more digestible. The health benefits of adding kombu to your diet is of course fantastic.

Tasty and nutritious

Very quick and easy to prepare. Goes well in a salad with mange tout and prawns with a lemon dressing.
Alternatively, serve simply dressed with a miso sauce or use with katsuoboshi (dried shaved bonito)to make basic Dashi. Very versatile.

To me, best quality

Beautifully cut. Sturdy and with an incredibly balanced yang energy. Use it to add minerals to dishes and help to keep them alkaline. Ad to bean stews, soups, etc and is incredible deep fried in the winter. Thank you Clearspring!
