This moss grows only a few inches high. Its color may be gray,
white, or even reddish.
Habitat and Distribution
Look for it in open areas. It is found only in the arctic.
All parts of the Iceland moss are edible. During the winter
or dry season, it is dry and crunchy but softens when soaked.
Boil the moss to remove the bitterness. After boiling, eat
by itself or add to milk or grains as a thickening agent. Dried
plants store well.
