As Advertised In King Lear...

I'm eating samphire. 

Doesn't taste of much, is very salty, juicy- has a crunch to it. I've tried it fresh- and fried. Both are good.

I like it that we're rediscovering these foods our many times great grandparents ate and our more recent ancestors abandoned. 

I wonder whether samphire is still harvested by brave souls dangling by ropes against cliff faces...
