25.06.2021 30 Days Wild #25 Sea samphire

When something is called after the patron saint of fishermen (Saint Pierre) and prized for being the poor man’s salty asparagus, then you can be sure that it has a strong connection with the sea.

In North Wales, apparently they call it sampkin.

So we were going to have a foraging meal for today’s wild adventure – but the local stocks in Hen Harbwr Penbre seemed quite deprived – so we left them for another day.

I really like the sound of pickled samphire – and I really, really like the sound of pickled sampkin. And by the ‘sound’, I really mean the ‘sound’. They must squeak on your teeth.

I guess there’s only one way to find out!
