Canadian sea cucumber

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.

 

Before resoaking

Don’t throw away the red inner reinforcement which is the most nutritive part of the arctic wild sea cucumber.

 

Let’s begin.

Resoaking preparation

 

We took 9 heads of Arctica Food wild sea cucumber (BEST & SELECT), weighing 200g.

 

 

Day 1 · Soaking

 

Soak dry sea cucumbers in water for a day in the fridge;

Till then, their weight arrived 539g.

 

 

Day 2 · Seaming

 

Put them in a pot, add water, bring to boil and simmer for 5 minutes, cool down naturally;

weighing  839g.

 

 

Seaming again
Repeat the previous step (adjust simmer time depending on texture preference); weighing 1290g.

 

 

Soak them in water for a day in the fridge.

 

Day 3 · Success!

 

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).
