Wild Icelandic Kelp - 2.5 ounces
2.5 ounces in a glass jar
Harvested from the bottom of the frigid North Atlantic off the coast of Iceland, this wild oarweed kelp has a deep umami flavor and salty minerality. It's dried and ground from Laminaria digitata kelp in a carbon-neutral facility powered by geothermal energy.

Kelp can be used as a salt substitute. It also adds depth, savoriness and body to soups and stews. Try sprinkling some over buttered bread, popcorn or sliced vegetables.
Harvest technique: This kelp is harvested by boat from the icy waters of Iceland’s Westfjords. Large scissor-like devices cut the tender, flavorful tops off the plants at a carefully calibrated depth that allows the kelp to regrow. The clipped kelp is collected from the ocean in nets and transported back to a geothermal facility where it is rinsed, dried and ground.
