Wild Korean Gamtae Seaweed from Seosan. Seasoned with sesame oil and salt, this delicious wild seaweed is collected in winter by rolling its threaded texture onto long spools before being roasted and dried. Afterwards, it has hand pressed into sheets. Harvesters must be cautious to not dislodge it’s underwater root to preserve future regeneration of the plant. A rare and coveted food, records show it was consumed as far back as the 17th century during the Joseon dynasty. It was a favorite of the royal family.
What’s crazy is Gamtae tastes almost identical to a white truffle.
Perfect for sushi or an afternoon snack.
The Seasoned Gamtae seaweed has been lightly salted and rubbed with sesame oil and roasted bamboo salt.
Each package contains 7 sheets (18 grams) of Gamtae Seaweed
