This bag of konbu kelp is perfect for making your own dashi. Dashi stock is the basis of many Japanese sauces and gives a rich umami flavour to any dish.

ITEM ID: #3314


Dashi and other stocks are hugely versatile ingredients that are the basis for many dishes such as noodle soup or mixed with miso paste for miso soup. Traditionally made from katsuobushi bonito flakes and konbu kelp strained together amongst other methods, instant varieties are much quick and easier to prepare.

How To Use

To whip up some home made kelp stock:
• Wipe the front of the kelp with a cloth and make plenty of cuts into the kelp with scissors.
• Add 10g of kelp into approx. 1 litre of water and begin to bring to the boil.
• Just before the water boils take out the kelp, add approx. 5g bonito flakes and stop the heat.
• When the flakes sink, strain well and use in a variety of cooking.
