Palmaria palmata

Dulse is a red algae that often grows on the stems of oarweed. It has a soft, silky texture and is deep maroon during winter, and green-yellow in summer. Centuries ago, it was considered by the Vikings to be a great accompaniment to mead, and since then it has forged a long tradition in the coastal communities of Ireland and Wales.

The fresh leaf has surprisingly delicate, savoury notes. When dried, there is a smoky sweetness with hints of liquorice and nuts that makes it a great snack food. It’s often referred to as ocean bacon, or vegan bacon. It is tender enough to be eaten fresh, but pickling it gives it extra oomph!
