How To Prepare Sea Moss
Clean Your Sea Moss
It is important to first, clean the Sea Moss and remove any sea debris, dirt, or particles. When handling Sea Moss always make sure your hands are clean so that you do not contaminate the Sea Moss and be sure to use filtered spring or alkaline water. Never use tap water to clean your Sea Moss. It is recommended to wash your Sea Moss multiple times 5-7 times to make sure it is cleaned thoroughly. Simply place your dried sea moss in a large bowl, cover it with water, and massage the sea moss. Be sure to remove any visible dirt and debris.
Soak In Water
After cleaning the Sea Moss, place the Sea Moss in a large bowl and cover it with filtered alkaline, or spring water. Add two key limes/lemons to the water. This isn’t mandatory if you are tolerant of the taste of the ocean. Make sure all the parts of the Sea Moss are covered. Then, cover the Sea Moss and allow it to soak for at least 12-24 hours. You can leave it on the counter covered at room temperature. You do not need to soak the Sea Moss in the refrigerator.
Prep For Blending
Once you have your soaked sea moss, remove the Sea Moss from the liquid, and transfer it to a clean, dry plate. Do not discard the water because this water, which now contains tons of nutrients from the Sea Moss, will be used to make the gel. If your water has lots of debris in it or is cloudy, discard your water and use fresh spring or alkaline water to make your Sea Moss gel.
Blend With Water
Add the Sea Moss to a high-powered blender along with the water. Use 1 cup of water to start and add more depending on the consistency you would like your gel.
Blend until it is smooth, about 1-3 minutes. Transfer the Sea Moss into an airtight container/mason jar, and refrigerate. The Sea Moss gel will thicken in the fridge after 2 hours.
