These Kelp Pickles are sure to please! Simple Pleasures harvest bull kelp around mid summer, and harvest it north of Sitka. To harvest kelp, they sit in a row boat, and reach down about a foot underwater and cut it off the stipend. They then process the kelp much like you would cucumbers, turning them into a delicious bread and butter pickle! If you haven't tried them yet, you really need too! Warning: They can become addicting and you might eat a whole jar in one sitting!
A truly Southeast Alaska taste adventure, these pickles are 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 potassium, iodine, and bromine, and also contains sugar, starch (algin), sulfur, phosphorus, chloride, iron, silicon, and trace elements.
