Birch Smoked Dulse (30g) - Islensk Hollusta

 

In Stock

Description

100% pure, whole dried dulse (Palmaria palmata). Handpicked sustainably in Icelandic nature. Perfectly suited for seasoning soups, salads, sauces, breads, and relishes.

Dulse is a savory treat which played a vital role in sustaining the populations of Northern-Europe as a dependable source of essential vitamins and minerals.

This dulse is hung in net bags and smoked over birch wood, giving it a beautiful extra umami flavour.

The oceans aren’t just for pescaterians. We are constantly exploring the North-Atlantic for exciting new plants and ingredients.

All our products are handpicked in areas with strong currents to ensure the purity of our products. We are committed to sustainability and all our harvesting and processing is done by hand - without the use of fossil fuel or machinery. This limits the impact on the environment and helps maintain the integrity of the ecosystem we rely on.

Our seaweed products are particularly flavorful and mineral-rich due to the purity of the waters around Iceland and the low levels of sunlight.

Kate says, "Dulse is already one of my favourite foods, but the smoking process takes this to a whole new level, and gives it a kind of smoky bacon flavour. I mostly add it to salads and wraps."

Ingredients

Pure Icelandic Dulse, wild and hand foraged, smoked over birch wood.

Further Information

Islensk hollusta is a brand founded in 2005 by Icelandic biologist Eyjólfur Friðgeirsson. His aim was to develop and produce health foods from Iceland. The company set out by producing herbal teas, spices, condiments, cheese, snacks, herb-marinated seaweed, berry juice and bath products. In September 2009, Friðgeirsson received an award from SI - the federation of Icelandic Industries, for his pioneering work.            

Friðgeirsson’s work is creative and original. He came up with new ways of producing Icelandic products, such as toasting sugar kelp to make a healthy snack, using birch, mountain herbs and angelica for cheese making, putting rhubarb and angelica together to make chutney, or mixing pulverised pumice and earth extracted salt from a borehole in Reykjanes to make a bath salt with health benefits.            

The ideals behind Íslensk hollusta are to use pure, Icelandic natural products and to let them enjoy their own freshness and simplicity using traditional Icelandic methods but reinventing cultural traditions. All ingredients are handpicked in Iceland with an emphasis on sustainability. Friðgeirsson wants to show others that nature can be our food supply.            

Íslensk hollusta supplies a number of prestigious clients within the restaurant industry with herbs, berries and seaweed.
