samphire


I was introduced to samphire at masterchef and I specially went to the marsh and look for them. The taste is very salty and has a tad bitter taste.It was like the taste of sea water. I did not harvest any.
Though there are two types of samphire - marsh and rock - only marsh samphire is widely available. Marsh samphire has vibrant green stalks, similar to baby asparagus, with a distinctively crisp and salty taste. It can be used raw in salad, though it tends to be very salty so it is more often boiled or steamed for a few minutes. Rock samphire has a rather unpleasant smell and flavour. Occasionally you may also find jars of pickled samphire in gourmet shops.
