Kelp -

An edible seaweed distinguished by its streamer-like leaves, found on both Northern coasts. The largest variety, known as the Giant Bladder Weed, has leaves which average from thirty to forty feet in length.

Kelp is in this country used almost exclusively as a fertilizer, but following Japanese methods of preparation - drying, shredding, etc. - it would undoubtedly meet with favor as a food product - for use in soup, or boiled as a vegetable for service with meats, etc., or moistened with milk as a breakfast food. In Japan, the various preparations of Kelp are known as "Kombu" and are largely consumed.
