soon served with butter
We’re spending a few days by the sea…

I had to look that up. It looks like something my wife would like,
I don’t think it is found in the U.S.A. If ever you come to northern Europe you must try it!
Some sailor Popeye is! Eating spinach instead of samphire! The very idea! 🙂 Your lovely haiku was very educational to me as well as Dan. At 70+, I had never heard of samphire until this morning. 🙂
My good deed for the day ! It’s nicer than spinach too 🙂
Oh, I LOVE this. A cooking/food haiku! The image of gathering samphire to the scent and sounds of the sea! A new (to me) word! Thank you for all of the inspiration, Rachael. Would love to try samphire when next in northern Europe….trying to imagine the flavor….xoxo
I think samphire is one of THE special things to eat because, like blackberries and so on, there’s that wonderful ritual of wild harvesting. And then there’s the taste of this ‘sea asparagus’. Salty and succulent. To be shared with the people one loves! xx
I have never heard of samphire. Looks good! What does it taste like? (And a lovely haiku, Rachael. Sounds like you’re having a great time!)
It’s raining rather a lot! Cold, hard rain at that; but the food, the cottage and the company is very fine! As I was saying to Chloe, samphire is like asparagus – but better. It came from the Meditteranean – maybe courtesy of the Romans. Take care, my friend. xx
I hope the sun comes out for you soon!
