Kelp Pickles

Preparation

1
Kelp pickles are not hard to make-in most cases you can do it just using a regular pickle recipe. Some of the best pickles, in a pleasing "ring"
2
Shape, can be made with small stipes (stalks) of the Nereocystis
3
"bullwhip" kelp which is common in Washington and British Columbia.
4
Likely if your light station is a rocky island it is ringed by a
5
"forest" of bullwhip kelp.
6
Here is a recipe for sweet kelp pickles that I have found very successful: 2 quarts of hollow Nereocystis bulbs and stipes cut about 1/2" long 2 C sugar or 1 1/2 C honey2 tsp each of celery seed, turmeric, mustard seed, and pickling spice 1 medium onion sliced1 tsp salt1 clove garlic or 1/4 tsp powdered garlic 1 1/2 C white vinegar
7
Combine all ingredients and let stand 3 hours. Heat to boiling and seal in hot jars. Needs no further processing. For a more tart pickle, decrease sugar.
