    Suggested uses

  • Ideal for Japanese stocks

  • Pickle in vinegar and add to salad

  • Makes beans more digestible - just add a piece to the pot while simmering

  • Add to enhance the flavor of vegetable stews

  • Basic prep

    Dried kombu needs to be simmered for at least 20 minutes to soften it and flavor the liquid. If used only for flavoring stock, the kombu itself is removed from the simmered liquid at the end of cooking and discarded.
