Monday, 27 August 2012's salty!

Every once in a while I get the urge to poison my family  try out something new.
This time the NEW thing was samphire. A salty plant that grows on the seashore. I made a barley stew with red onions home-grown courgettes and cashew nuts and it was served with samphire and mozzarella. Let's just say it filled a hole, but I won't be buying it again in a hurry. It was all a bit weird. That salty crunch ....I don't think the texture of barley really helped with the whole experience. I'm sure Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's samphire creations taste delicious but I have to say, so far, I am not a fan.


  1. Samphire is delicious with fish - just lightly boil the samphire, little pepper and butter. It's not really that nice with anything else.

  2. It LOOKS really delicious and I love the plate!
