A truly Southeast Alaska taste adventure, this marmalade is made from Bull Kelp (Nereocystis luetkeana), a seaweed of the Pacific Northwest coast. This is one of the largest seaweeds known. It is high in potasium, iodine, and bromine,
and also contains sugar, starch (algin), sulfur, phosphorus, chloride, iron, silicon, and trace elements.
Alaskan Kelp Marmalade
To make Kelp marmalade we take whole oranges and whole lemons and grind them up until they are liquid. Then we peel and grate the kelp. So you taste a burst of citrus while chewing on kelp! What a great way to get all of those great nutritional benefits from kelp!
It is excellent warm biscuits, and our favorite way to eat it is to spread a bagel or cracker with cream cheese and then top with kelp marmalade. Delicious! A great way to share part of your Alaska vacation with friends!
