Kombu Seaweed

Today on the way back home from the Sustainable Living Conference in Plant City with my friend Pat I stopped at the wonderful Chinese Oceanic Market in downtown Tampa and bought several packages of the dried kombu (kelp) seaweed that not only adds natural iodine to my diet, but is also indispensable to my making really good miso soup and Vietnamese dipping sauces for springrolls. It is harvested right off the coast of Japan and in view of the radioactive soup pouring into the sea from the damaged reactors, I will be hesitant for quite some time to buy kombu harvested since the incident. It keeps well dry in a cupboard but CAN get moths if stored a long time, so these packages are going into my big freezer.
