We were blessed to be given some freshly harvested Karengo from whanau....
He taonga! Tena koe Whaea Cherry moo weenei kai noo Tangaroa!
Karengo is highly mineralising, it is also an important wild food, meaning it has all it's vital force intact.
Something I try everyday, is to connect with foods that have come direct from Papatuaanuku as they provide us with untamed energy that is so lacking in our 'sanitised world'.
All sea vegetables are just about the most mineral rich foods we can eat! They are one of the best plant sources of Calcium. They also contain good sources of Vitamin K, B Vitamins and iodine (iodine is essential for the healthy function of the thyroid gland).
We have simply dried it in the sun, this way it will keep throughout the year, although I don't think it will last that long here......
Apart from eating it as is, it can be added to salads, stuffed into wraps. I am going to try sofening it and adding some other flavours - watch this space...............
