This may sound bizarre, but Judith Cooper Madlener in the "Sea Vegetable Book" claims it's an old New England treatment for coughs and colds. That could well be, as many early Irish and Scottish settlers had eaten dulse "back home" and still enjoyed it in the New World.
- 1 Tablespoon dried dulse
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
- 1 tsp. honey
1. Soak dulse in cold water for 10 - 15 minutes. Drain.
2. Boil dulse in fresh water for 20 minutes.
3. Strain out a glassful of liquid.
4. Add lemon juice and honey and drink while hot. (It's good cold, too).
