Carrageen Cough and Cold Remedy

Carrageen Irish Moss is a red shoreline seaweed traditionally used in the treatment of colds, sore throats and coughs. This Carrageen remedy can be added to smoothies, yogurts, porridge or just enjoyed straight from the spoon. Add as many or as little extras as you wish, our favourites are lemon and ginger, especially when feeling under the weather.

Ingredients:

10g of Carrageen Seaweed

500ml  of water

Lemon/cloves/ginger/sugar/honey/cordial – to taste, to your own preferences

Method:

  1. Soak 10g of carrageen in a bowl of cold water for 15 mins.
  2. Place soaked carrageen in a pan with 500ml of water.
  3. Bring to the boil and simmer for 15 mins – the seaweed should break up into little pieces and the liquid thickens.
  4. Strain the liquid through a sieve, making sure you get all the liquid through the sieve with a spoon.
  5. Add lemon/cloves/ginger/sugar/honey/cordial to taste – to your own preferences.
  6. Allow to cool and decant into a re-sealable jar/container (a jam jar is perfect!). Once the mixture is cooled it will set into a jelly. This will keep in the fridge for 1 week.
