Re: [Marbling] Raw Moss for cooking
By Raw Moss, do you mean the dried carragheenan that you have to boil and
then strain? If so, I bought a large amount of it about 20 years ago from
Talas in N.Y. but after finding blender caragheenan I never boiled another
batch. If Talas no longer sells it, you can try a health foods store, one
that sells in bulk. Ask for "Irish Moss Tea". By the way, the best device
for straining is a cloth paint strainer (available at a paint store) much
better than panty hose which I used to use!

- Jake.....Talas may yet have some old stock...have you tried them?
Does this ever bring back memories!! Do you prefer all the trouble over the
powder? I once collected some at the beach in Maine, it worked moderately
well. The powder sure is expensive, but is consistent at least.
