Hi Ikn- Irish Moss is a sea algae- commonly known as Carregeenan- that expands in water and when blended- takes on a gelatinous texture. Its extremely healing for the digestive tract and rich in minerals.

orgfoodaddict,

So once you have the Irish Moss, how do you make the gel? What proportion of moss to water, how long, etc?

ikn and greenie- you can buy irish moss online at the above website. Its hard to say just how much irish moss creates a large spoonful- but I would recommend preparing more than two spoonfuls worth- especially if you begin to use it in other live dishes. The gel lasts about a good two weeks or more (go by the smell) - I would not freeze the gel for more than brief half hour.

orgfoodaddict,

Thanks for the additional information. Can you tell us how much moss to start with to end up with a large spoonful of the gel? And how long the gel lasts in the fridge, or can you freeze it?

Thanks! would chia seeds be a good substitute if I can't get the Irish Moss at my local healthfood store?

First- the irish moss- you need to rinse really well till there is little to no seaweed smell. Wash off any excess sand/etc. Then soak irish moss in filtered water to cover for 12-24 hrs, rinsing a few times a day. After irish moss is soaked well- add in vitamix with water and blend- start with a little water- if you add too much the mixture will not congeal- blend well till smooth.
