May 19th, 2011 – This is not Irish Moss

Although thousands of miles apart, both culturally and physically, the islands of the Grenadines and the islands of Japan have a similar affinity for sea food. I grew up eating things, like sea urchin, that most Americans might find distasteful. People from the Grenadines will eat almost anything from the ocean, including sea weed. We prepare it much differently from the Japanese, however. In the Grenadines, the sea weed is boiled until it becomes a white jelly. The jelly is then blended with milk and served with alcohol, usually rum, as a cocktail called Irish Moss.
