It's seaweed. I loooooove seaweeds. It's a dark purplish-reddish salty (not *real* salty though) seaweed. It comes in flakes or pieces. It can be eaten plain (a lot of people like it this way) or you can rehydrate it. It doesn't really need to be cooked, but you can if you want. I've seen it used as a sub for bacon in a BLT, so that would make it a DLT <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=""><br><br>
It also comes in granules in shakers to sprinkle on dishes. It's nutritious and has lots of minerals. A good salt sub.<br><br>
I like to mix it into hot grains or pieces on salads, yum. I also have the shaker kind and sprinkle it on almost anything.<br><br><br><br>
