    When I was reading Brother Cadfael novels, Ellis Peters would refer to them as “urchins”. Which took me a moment to figure out, even when she said “The urchins were snug in their hedges.” Once I did, I realized why we call sea urchins that.

    There is also a food item called an “urchin” which has slivered almonds stuck in all over the outside. Karen Anderson used to make them.
