Annestown when the tide is out is a good spot for picking your own.
I didn't realise you could buy it, I used to just pick it off the shore when I was a young wan.
dilisk dillisk is this a Waterford nickname ,
If so ,what are we talking about
ie real name.
Well it was called dilisk in Galway when I was growing up.
I used to pick it up out in Bunmahon when I was but a boy. I think it's horrible stuff TBH
Many years ago I was shocked that nobody I knew in college had ever heard of Dilisk (or Dulse as they call it up the north).
I tried to explain that it was quite normal for people in Waterford to make sandwiches from dried purple seaweed ,of an intense salty flavour and rubbery texture.......or eat it as a snack with a pint in the pub during the summer.
I was told that Waterford people must be cracked in the head.....or mabey I'd been smoking some funny seaweed........
Tried to eat some of it in me local last year.....f**kin' horrible stuff , but everyone else in the pub seem to enjoy it.
Never had it but would love to give it a go because that sushi seaweed is tasty.
Some Japanese genes in the Deise pool it seems. Sounds awful.
its full of iodine.... handy have a bag of dillisk around seeing as the iodine tablets the gov issued are out of date
