I bought some samphire. I've seen it being used on tv and then there it was in the supermarket so I had to try it. I love it's name... samphire... samphire... like a mixture of sapphire and, um, just regular fire. For those who don't know (according to the packet) it's a 'sea plant that grows mainly on tidal marshes. It has vibrant green stalks with a distinctive crisp texture and a characteristic saltiness.' I've tried it raw and really it just tastes like you would imagine seaweed would taste - it has an almost jelly like centre and is pretty salty, and I am not 100% sure that I like it. Apparently you can boil it slightly and eat it with butter like a fishy asparagus... I will give it a go. Anyone got any samphire tips that don't involve eating it with fish?
