Sugar kelp is easily recognisable with rippled edges and an alligator-like skin. It is yellowy-brown in colour. Grows quickly, up to 4 metres in length and 60cm wide. High in umami taste. Sugar kelp also produces mannitol, a natural sugar that gives a sweetness to your food.
Soak and simmer to make a hearty broth. The whole leaf can be used to wrap and steam vegetables, meats, and fish. The fresh kelp is milder and can be used as a green vegetable in wok meals and salads. Well suited as a natural flavour enhancer/seasoning. Sprinkle on vegetables, fish or meat.
Goes well with nuts, dried fruit and chocolate for dessert and cakes.
