How to rehydrate and clean sea cucumber-Cleaning sea cucumber is not as daunting as you think. A lot of passive waiting, but not labor-intensive.
Don’t throw away the red inner reinforcement which is the most nutritive part of the arctic wild sea cucumber.
We took 9 heads of Arctica Food wild sea cucumber (BEST & SELECT), weighing 200g.
Soak dry sea cucumbers in water for a day in the fridge;
Till then, their weight arrived 539g.
Put them in a pot, add water, bring to boil and simmer for 5 minutes, cool down naturally;
Soak them in water for a day in the fridge.
Now they are weighing 1640g. The dried product gains 8 times it’s weight once resoaked. More it grows, softer it is.
Can be used as a protein in your recipes; can be stored 3~4 days soaked in water in the fridge (change water daily).
