DESCRIPTION

Our Wild Nori (Porphyra porforata) comes in crispy tufts, lustrous black in color. Of the sea vegetables, it is the highest in protein, iron and vitamin B-12 and grows in the pristine waters of the Pacific, off the coast of Mendocino.

We harvest Porphyra by gently tearing it off below the holdfast. We ocean-rinse our Nori to rid it of sand and ocean fauna and then take it inland to sun-dry. Wild Nori grows primarily atop rock beds that dot the sandy shoreline. The greenish-purple nori lends a wooly mammoth appearance to the wet rocks but dries to a crisp dark brown lacquer-like malting in the ebb tide sunlight. The stipeless blades are only a single cell thick and attach themselves to the rocks by a tiny discoid holdfast.

This delicate perennial is a also rich source of vitamin C and contains up to 25% protein by weight. Nori also adds vitamin B12, carbohydrates and trace minerals to your diet. It is a cherished favorite among traditional cultures the world over.

Wild Nori is delicious in soups and as a toasted condiment. It also makes a delicious roasted snack or garnish, a favorite toasted with sesame seeds to sprinkle on grains and veggies.

Care: To preserve seaweed for a year or more, store in a sealed container.
