Taste Test

The results are in…the seaweed is a hit!

Jolie and Tatum testing (and loving) the seaweed.

Jolie and Tatum are older girls and let’s just say…they’re not shy!  They tried to hog the bowl but we made sure the more timid girls had a taste, too.  That little bag didn’t go very far but I think it’s safe to say they’d be OK if we changed them over to this.  I’ll have to take a look at how it compares to their current minerals.

  • When I visited the Orkneys a number of years ago, I was told that North Ronaldsay sheep (a rare breed) routinely eat seaweed and that you can tell it from their meat: it’s very salty I didn’t try the meat, but I do have a very nice knitted North Ronaldsay scarf.

    The sheep that live on Maine islands eat the seaweed and they do quite well on their own. Jim and I have helped with shearing and the fall roundup on one island…a wonderful experience. The meat does have a “different” flavor…from the sea…and the wool from these sheep is lovely!
