|The original source of umami, the "fifth flavour" first identified in 1908, whole-leaf kombu / kelp adds a superb deep rich flavour to broths, soups and stocks. Kombu can improve digestion and helps to soften pulses and grains during both soaking and cooking.|
Kombu kelp strips provide a naturally smooth flavour enhancer and are used to infuse broths, stocks and soups. They're especially highly prized in Japanese cuisine and are the key ingredient of dashi stock, which translates 'savoury deliciousness' and provides a pure umami hit.
Mara Seaweed is harvested sustainably from the pure, wild waters around Scotland and Ireland. To avoid contamination, the seaweed is packed into sealed sacks before being brought up the beach and delivered fresh, directly to the factory. Mara Seaweed is picked and processed within 24 hours to lock in flavour, ensure quality and secure maximum nutritional benefits.
Kombu and kelp are both names for the brown seaweed Laminaria digitata.
Use Kombu Kelp Strips during cooking, and take out before serving. Think of them as the stock cubes of the sea. Whether you’re making traditional lentil soup or dashi stock for ramen, kelp is a fantastic natural flavour enhancer.
A strip of Kombu will soften grains and pulses, and give stews and sauces body. Try it when soaking dried beans for an unbeatable depth of flavour.

Britain's original bean, the fava bean is delicious, nutritious and good for the soil. Our Organic Whole Fava Beans are perfect for spicy Egyptian ful medames, truly British baked beans, stews, curries, salads and more.
Our current crop of whole fava beans are the unusually small, round and wonderfully tender Maris Bead variety, bred over 50 years ago at the Plant Breeding Institute on Maris Lane near Cambridge. Whether they're cooked from dry or used canned, we think these are our best ever whole fava.
|These wonderfully wrinkly peas have a distinctively sweet and grassy flavour. Their especially high levels of resistant starch provide excellent nourishment for our gut flora.|
Wrinkled peas are mostly grown for freezing but if not harvested in time they go to waste. Not these ones!
Whole wrinkled peas are superb in stews and curries, with a distinctively sweet, grassy flavour.
We're still experimenting with ways of cooking these peas ourselves but they can be substituted in recipes for other whole peas, especially whole yellow or blue peas. We look forward to hearing how you've cooked them!
Grown at Great Glemham Farms in Suffolk's Alde Valley.View full product details
