On the rare occasions Limpets are eaten in England, they are boiled and eaten cold with vinegar.

Richard Carew's 'The Survey of Cornwall' of 1602 has; "The particular taking of sundrie kinds of fishes, is almost as diuers as themselues. Wrinckles, Limpets, Cockles, and Muscles, are gathered by hand, vpon the rockes and sands."
