Step by step instruction of cooking Sea grapes in Sakhalin
To collect the algae need in may-early June. Later they become hard. But this year I managed to collect algae in the spring, so I decided to cook sea grapes now while you can. Once on the sea caught a single beam. The beam was a branch of one plant with a mixture of sea grass and green algae.
After thorough rinsing, removal of sea grass and rough trunks, and got about 0.5 kg of algae.
Algae cover with water with the addition of 1-3 tablespoons of vinegar. Boil for half an hour.

Peel the onion, cut into half rings. Carrots grate on a coarse grater.
Vegetables fry in a pan.
