Few shoreline Browns are worth considering as snacks. But sugar kelp is well named.
Find it richly brown, fresh in narrow crinkled blades (without a central stem) and take some home.
Wash a few times in fresh water, leave to soak for ten minutes twice. Pat dry, lay on tissue on a radiator.
It turns lovely green and crisp. Crumble on strong cheese or slices of tomato, maybe both. It is still salty and rehydrates in the mouth.
Savour and enjoy.
