The Pantry Quiz #29

The Pantry Quiz.

What is it?

Gross as it sounds, you've probably eaten and loved this fairly common ingredient. What is red algae from the Porphyra genus?


Please leave your answer in the comments, and let us know whether you have this ingredient in your pantry.

[Last week's answer: Star anise isn't one of the seven spices in Japanese seven-spice powder. All of the others on the list are in the mix.]

nori, for sushi :-)

i don't have it in my pantry and i don't like algae, but i love sushi!

have a nice weekend!

Nori? I do have sheets of nori in my pantry, along with a long-standing ambition to make gimbap.

Nori for sure. I am a real sushi "laver"!

Nori. Not being a fan of it, I don't have any.

yes, nori for sure, also another type of red algae "Irish Moss" is used to thicken ice cream

Nori - but I totally cheated (I mean, "researched") and looked it up on your blog. I do have it in my pantry, although I think I have only used it once.

Nori for sure-i! I have sheets and the little Korean rice grabbers, as well as the desire to make gimbap -- thanks for the reminder, Nupur!

Nori, and mine is in my fridge.
I keep making a roll or two at a time and it takes a while to use the whole thing up.

Cousin Martin, you're a hoot!

Mmmm. I have toasted and salted nori. I love taking sheets of it and picking up rice with it. I started buying it after eating it at a Korean friend's house. Mmmmm.
