Laver (porphyra purpurea)

A reddish edible seaweed found around Britain"s shores. If you gather some, it must be washed well to remove any sand and grit, It is most often then made into laverbread, by first boiling it, before chopping it finely, and madding it into pats. It is finished by being rolled in oatmeal and fried with bacon, until brown on both sides. It"s often known as sloke in Ireland and parts of Scotland. See 'Seaweed'; 'Sloke'
