Dillisk or Palmaria palmata is a deep or ferrous red seaweed found on the pristine shores of the North Atlantic. It is necessary to wait for a low tide to collect this amazing ‘sea vegetable’ from rock pools and shallow water, as it grows at the bottom of the shore. It’s flat, leathery textured fronds can be found attached to the rocks or to the stalks of a different type of seaweed, ‘oarweed’ which is a larger brown kelp.
It has doubtless been harvested for many a century, however the earliest record of Dilisk harvesting is 1400 years ago in the writings of St Columba and the monks of Iona.
Great quality! locally harvested from cleanest of water. Such a great idea! Congratulations on seeing the possibility the local seaweed crop had to offer . Best of luck with the business!!
