Laverbread

Parsons

Laverbread is a Welsh delicacy made from laver seaweed, sea salt and water. It's delicious spread on bread or toast with a little lemon juice or mixed with oatmeal to make laver cakes.

Laver seaweed - Porphyra umbilicalis, closely related to Japanese nori - grows widely around the west coast of Britain and has long been used to produce the traditional Celtic laverbread.

After being gathered the seaweed is thoroughly washed and is cooked until it becomes soft, then minced to convert it into a paste like texture.

Laver is highly nutritious, very low in calories, rich in protein, contains iodine and vitamins A, B2, C and D.
