Bladdderwrack or Rockweed ◇ Can we eat seaweed sustainably?
Seaweed as food... It's always been an interesting thing for me. I often thought seaweed was widely forgotten about as an edible plant. Or is algae something from a completely different kingdom???
I am not an expert on the subject but it looks as though farming seaweed could be a lot more sustainable than today's mono-crop farming habbits!!!
Turns out there are lots of edible algae in our oceans, some with lots of nutrition, some are super tasty and some are kind of toxic.
The other day, taking a walk on the beach I took a few photos and wondered if this was something we can eat:
Wild food... eating from the wild has been on my mind and I'm even thinking of getting ino hunting in 2020. (Thanks to wild-fed and Daniel Vitalis for the inspiration and giving me the tools to get started in this world of #rewilding!) Seaweed is definitely also on the radar...
I'm thinking this is Bladdderwrack, aka rockweed (focus vesiculosus).
First step, identifying plants... next is finding out which one's are edible.
