You're missing out on a treat. Ask anyone from the East Coast of Canada. I may be from the West Coast, but the military introduces you to East Coasters and their cuisine. I never did get the idea of Dulce, though. Dried seaweed. Tastes like dandelion leaves in iodine solution.

I believe the idea was when the family ran out of potatoes and dried fish and the hunger pangs wouldn't go away, you could feed your kids dulce so they would quit complaining and put up with not having anything tasty on their plate. If it was eat dulce or starve, at least dulce has nutrients, unlike tree bark tea.

I was going to say that fiddleheads are a spring tradition up here in Maine. They grow wild and are readily available at farm stands and grocery stores for several weeks a year in the spring. Get the spiky part off and give em a quick stir fry, yummy! (No vinegar though )

Doesn't look like there would be much left to eat after removing the spiky part.

And I have seen street food in Asia that could scare most folks like silkworm larvae boiled in a wok and served in a snow cone cup,
and still Haggis is pretty scary stuff. I think they started it on a dare or something.

It's the catching of them that's the difficult bit... not the eating of them.

Dulce sounded vaguely familia I enquired from herself apparently its called dillisk around here

Copied from irishseaweeds.com site

St. Columba's monks 12th Cent poem

Seal ag buain duilisg so charraig seal ag aclaidh, seal ag tabhairt bhídh do bhoctaibh, seal i gcaracair.

A while gathering Dulse / Dillisk from the rock a while fishing, a while giving food to the poor, a while in a cell.

Aye same stuff here but we spell it Dulse.

See that's our close association between our two nations, apart from wee spelling differences, like Whisky and Whiskey...
