1. Measure out 1 cup (approximately 2oz) of Irish moss.
2. Get a pitcher and measure out 4-6 cups of spring water (you'll need this to rinse your moss about 3-4 times depending on how much dirt, shells, or other sea debris is on the moss).
3. Get your pitcher and install the ninja whipping paddle
4. Combine 2 oz of dried Irish moss to 2 cups of spring water in the pitcher.
5. Blend on dough or low speed for 10 minutes and let the blender do all the elbow work.
6. Pour out water and replace with 2 cups of spring water. Do this at least 2 times to remove all the dirt and debris.
7. Get a large bowl and run your fingers through to scrape off any sea salt/dirt on the moss and remove any shells, snails or other sea life.
8. Rinse with more spring water until your Irish moss no longer has any dirt or debris at the bottom of the bowl.
9. Once you've thoroughly cleaned your Irish moss, get a large bowl and fill it with 2 cups of spring water or enough water to fully cover the moss. If you are sensitive to the smell, I recommend using 1-2 key limes to soak with your moss.
10. You can soak the moss anywhere from 3-12 hours. I usually soak overnight but I've heard some soak for just a few hours and it came out just the same.
11. Once you are done soaking your moss, pour it into a large strainer or colander to drain the water. Then measure out 2 cups of water and combine the moss and water into a large picture and blend on high speed for about 3-5 minutes.
12. Pour your moss into a mason jar with a breathable lid cover like a cheese cloth, coffee filter, or good old fashioned paper towel so your Irish moss will last up to 4 weeks if you are consuming 1 tbsp a day and store in refrigerator or freeze until you are ready to consume.
