Fresh Kelp Soup
Add the dulse to a large bowl of water and leave to re-hydrate for about 10 minutes. Drain the re-hydrated seaweed and add to a saucepan along with the enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and continue boiling for 10 minutes, topping the water up as needed. Drain then set aside to cool a little before shredding finely and reserving.
Combine the kelp with the dulse and carragheen in a saucepan then cover with 1.5l of water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for about 30 minutes. Either ladle immediately into bowls and serve hot as a soup or pour into a bowl, allow to cool then refrigerate for at least 3 hours and serve as a chilled, jellied, starter.
