Carrageen Moss Pudding

Carrageen Moss is a seaweed which can be gathered off the south and west coasts of Ireland. It is rich in iodine and trace elements and is full of natural gelatine. Carrageen means 'little rock' in Gaelic.
 
There are two very similar varieties of Carrageen Moss, Gigartina Stellata, and Chondrus Crystus.  Both are widely distributed.   They are brownish-black or dark green and from 3 - 6 inches long.  They grow abundantly on the rocks at low tide line.
