Mikuni Wild Harvest
Dried Raw Kombu Seaweed
This high quality kombu is a deep-sea kelp that is harvested from cold northern waters off the island of Hokkaido, Japan. Its long, dark fronds make a flavour-enhancing addition to soups, stews, grains, beans, and vegetables.
To Prepare: Soak for ten minutes and cut into pieces. To make flavourful soup stock (dashi), add one 3 inch piece to 1 quart water and bring to a boil. Just before boiling, remove kombu and save for use in other dishes.
Ingredients: kombu sea vegetable (laminaria japonica)
About the Vendor
Mikuni Wild Harvest is a Vancouver-based company that sources sustainable and artisanal food from the pacific rim. Mikuni started exporting mushrooms to Japan and Europe in the early eighties. In 2001, Mikuni changed focus to the development of a boutique line of sustainable wild foods for restaurants and gourmet retail outlets. Since then, our company has grown from a few committed individuals slugging it out in a basement office, to a team of like-minded individuals with distribution centers throughout Canada and the United States. Although the size and direction of our company has changed dramatically over the years, our concept and commitment has not. It has always been Mikuni’s goal to provide our customers with the highest quality of unique and sustainable wild foods. Inasmuch as the organic food movement has garnered attention in the last decade, at Mikuni we believe that we are at the beginning of another movement, one that explores the abundance of richly flavoured foods found exclusively in the wild.
