  1. Interesting! I did read the linked article about the trendy places using it in their dishes, and all I could think was, “There’s not a chance in the world I’d be able to afford to eat at those places!”

    And I confess I wouldn’t want to eat some of those dishes. 😉

    Still, your post has given me a direction to go in identifying a plant I’ve found here, down in the marshes. It has the same kind of jointed appearance – I’ll have to make another run at it.

    • I went back to the Lake this morning, and harvested some nice fresh samphire, which I had this evening, and it was delicious! Just simply done, blanched, and added to a bowl with sliced snow peas, cucumber and lemon juice and olive oil. Hmmm, I might get hooked on it! 🙂

    • I’m sure it costs a fortune in some fancy places here too! It’s tempting to try growing it at home….in a special container…..
      Tell you what, when you come over here, I’ll cook some for you 🙂

    • I can’t quite explain what it tasted like, except it was nice – I’ll have to gather some more soon and write down immediately the taste sensations 🙂
