Make Irish Moss Gel Using the Simmer Method
1. Add one cup (or less if you require a soft set) of Irish Moss to two cups of filtered/spring water.
2. Simmer slowly until most of the seaweed has dissolved (20 -25 minutes). Do not boil.
3. Blend with a blender until smooth, or if you prefer, remove any undissolved fragments by straining the solids through a sieve. Use a spoon to scrape the sieve if required.
4. Pour gel into a clean jar or mould to set. Will keep 1 to 2 weeks with no preservative in the fridge.
