Lovely, lovely marsh samphire/glasswort (Salicornia), is in uber abundance at the moment near me. Perfect picking time before it starts developing a woody pith. Not a lot I can say other than try this lush samphire recipe.
- 300g marsh samphire
- 250ml white wine vinegar
- 50g caster sugar
- 4 bay leaves
- 2 fresh wild fennel sprigs (chopped)
- ½tsp juniper berries
- Combine all ingredients in a pan and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Pickout the juniper berries and bay leaf and allow to cool before bottling in clean jars.
