I suspect this one'll have to miss the series then.

We were discussing 'dulse' or 'duillisc', an edible seaweed much favoured in Ireland, and I added another, carrageen moss, which makes a suberb culnary thickener and gel. The discussion also involved Brehon Law. I hope MH comes back soon.

Food for Free by Richard Mabey gives a good account of dulse and carragheen as well as several other edible seaweeds.

Am I right in thinking that 'seaweed' on the standard Chinese Restaurant menu is simply fried, finely shredded cabbage with spices? It's delicious, but inaccurately named, I think.

Yes isn't it Bok Choy or Pak Choi...or something along those lines?

I saw Richard Mabey on the telly this evening. He's old now, he always used to be young.

Ithink druids were always old, a bit like wizards.

The original title of the thread was Dulse and Druids, it's a reference to the Brehon stuff (about which I know nothing).
