Samphire (100g)


100g of local samphire


Samphire is a coastal plant that grows in some places in the UK including Southport. Because of where it grows it is quite a salty vegetable, high in minerals. You can sometimes eat it raw but it can be quite stringy. It is best to boil it for a minute so it becomes tender.
