Dulse

Dulse is a type of seaweed that has been eaten in Northern Ireland for hundreds of years. Strong, salty (of course) stuff, some people love it. I remember my granny used to eat it like sweeties - I've never been able to acquire a taste for it. (I saw this dulse for sale at the farmers' market - not a bad little business - selling something gathered for free at the shore for £1 a bag.)

Well, thank you for stopping over and having a look at my Brown Jersey cow at the fair. She is a beautiful cow I think too.

I never heard of the kind of seaweed your post talks about, but I did note you mentioned it was a nice little business, gathering it for free, etc.

That is like the fish in the ocean that are freely taken and sold and consumed. I don't think it is right unless the fish have a voice in the matter, of course they don't.

Anyway. I enjoyed your post and I hope you have enjoyed mine. Thanks.

I also started a blog about birds since I have taken several thousand bird photos. You might like to have a look at some of them I have online.

I love marinated seaweeds - especially when it's sweet! I like eating it with fish fillet with white sauce and Chinese fried rice, starting of course with corn soup! Yum!

Being an entrepreneur has its rewards! Don't think anyone is going to become a millionaire with this little business tho!
