Ahn-Ok Nam Charcoal-Dried Dashima Squares

Deep, tasting Anchovy-Kelp Broth

[Ahn-Ok Nam] Charcoal-Dried Dashima Squares

Ahn-Ok Nam's Dashima Squares produce deep-tasting Korean stock broth.

Ahn-Ok Nam harvests high-quality kelp from the southern coast of Korea - near Gijang, Jindo, Wando and Goheung. The kelp is quickly cut, processed and left to dry in charcoal-briquette stacked rooms. (Charcoal is very effective in soaking moisture and harsh odors out of the air). The kelp dries quickly without tainting its natural flavor or losing nutrition. The dashima is then cut into small squares, making it easy to use at home.
Good quality dashima has white spots visible on the surface. These white spots are called Mannit (or more commonly known as umami) and they form as the kelp dries out. Water evaporates into the air but the minerals crystallise as white dots on the surface. Mannit provide that umami flavor when boiled in water. This is why Dashima is used to make Korean Stock Broth. It's a must-have item for Korean cooking.

What is Dashima?

Dashima is a type of edible seaweed (brown algae) that is extensively harvested on ropes in between the seas of Korean and Japan. Dashima is also known as "kombu" in Japan. Both countries use it as an ingredient in making stock for soup and stews.  

Besides soup stock, dashima can also be deep-fried into bugak or eaten raw as a ssam (wrap).
