The Irish were eating seaweed centuries before sushi came to its shores. Simon Beckett joins the harvest, and discovers that hand-picked dulse and carrageen makes remarkably good bread, broth and even chocolate jelly.
Aran Islands, Ireland. Rough ferry ride out, the roughest they said it had ever been. But very nice once they got there.
