Cure coughs and colds with Carrageen

Winter is here and I hope you got to dry and store your foraged seaweeds to use throughout the season, until new growth next spring. If not, you can buy most varieties in your local health shop or quality supermarket.

Carrageen is one worth having in the store cupboard. Known also by the names Carrageen Moss, Irish Moss, it is often sold bleached to a creamy white.
