Shellfish and seaweed I am very fond of, but actual plants around the seashore I am needing to brush up on this year which is a big aim of mine. Last year I wanted to ID at least 10 new edible mushrooms which I exceeded, as well as plants like sweet cicely, but mainly offshore ID.
So, rural Scotland, up in the Moray Firth, where the climate is not so great.... But not as bad as over on the west coast! Sea beet is my first of the year and I look to have it nailed. I forgoed eating it until I had a positive ID but am fairly happy with my ID now and it is growing in abundance. Has anyone got any experience of eating it? If so, ideas on prep and how does it taste? Can it be eaten raw? (rather cook it anyway). It is kinda tough looking so I am assuming a kale/cabbage type substitute?
Any views on it would be much appreciated! :-)
