Foraging on the Kelp Superhighway
Did you know that seaweed is one of the most nutritious foods you can eat? Or that it can even dramatically reduce the amount of methane cows produce? Imagine the idea that eating something delicious could be both good for you AND cut down on harmful gases destroying the planet! On today’s episode, we speak to our friend John Fitzgerald, co-owner of Atlantic Irish Seaweed.
John and his wife Kerryann have been running seaweed discovery courses and workshops in County Kerry since 2009. We talk to John about how long Irish people have been eating seaweed and why it’s suddenly back in fashion, how to forage responsibly, other uses for seaweed beyond food, and much more.
