When I'm stressed, I make jam. And I can assure you that once you've tasted this incredibly delicious freezer jam, you'll be kicking the blues to the curb while you enjoy a hearty helping of this jam...right out of the canning jar!
Samphire, a.k.a sea beans, sea asparagus, salicornia, or picklewort, thrives in the marshy coastal areas of the Northeast. Easy to pick, easy to clean, easy to cook, delicious in a quick vinaigrette alone or mixed with asparagus. Great with fish too.
