RAW Irish Moss Paste

Dried Irish Moss

I know this is WEIRD beyond reason, but this gnarly sea creature looking is perfect for thickening RAW food recipes. It's so simple to make and is an asset for every vegan kitchen. Irish moss, also known as carrageen moss, is a species of seaweed which grows abundantly along the rocky parts of the Atlantic coast of Europe and the Americas as well as parts in the Pacific. In its fresh condition the plant is soft and cartilaginous, varying in color from a greenish-yellow, through red, to a dark purple or purplish-brown. The principal constituent of Irish moss is a mucilaginous body, made of the polysaccharide Carragenan of which it contains about 55%; the plant also has nearly 10% of protein and about 15% minerals, specifically rich in iodine and sulfur. Because of the abundant cell wall polysaccharides it forms a jelly processed with water.

Wildcrafted Irish Moss is neutral in flavor, known as a super food among RAW Chefs, a great treatment for skin rashes and psoriasis and a fabulous thickening agent for RAW recipes - especially desserts.

Rinse and Drain the Irish Moss

The Irish Moss will be pliable and assorted debris from its sea growth. This must be rinsed off, pulled off, etc.

Don't worry, this will only take a minute or two under running water. I use the spray nozzle on my faucet to facilitate the process.

Blend the Irish Moss

Place the soft clean Irish Moss into a HIGH SPEED BLENDER, Blendtec Total Blender or Vitamix.

Add 1 cup of water and blend starting on low and increase to full speed.

And the final 1/2 cup and blend on high again.
