Sea Purslane, Wild (50g)

(37p per 10g)
Our sea purslane grows (and is foraged) in the wild, along the banks of an English channel estuary in East Sussex. Its edible, green and plump leaves have a brilliant sea-salt taste. Fantastic raw as a garnish (you’ll only need a little as it is really salty) and with fish, naturally.

Sea purslane grows wild, so it can't be certified as organic. Wross believes (like us and the organic community) in harvesting in a sustainable way. He only picks in small batches which means we’ll only have a small amount available to order.

Country of Origin - UK FYI: as this is wild sea purslane, it can’t be officially classified as organic.

Hailing from Brighton, Wross was a former fisherman and tree surgeon before becoming a forager. “Ever since I can remember, I’ve wanted to be outside.” Wross tells us. He wants others to appreciate the wonders of the great outdoors, even if they’re not partial to foraging themselves. Lucky for us, Wross has donned the wellies for you to bring wild things right to your door.

Storage & prep

These salty leaves can be eaten raw. Use them sparingly as a garnish so as not to overwhelm your dish. Blanching or steaming reduces the salty flavours, but avoid boiling which will make the leaves bitter to taste. A pinch of black pepper, a squeeze of lemon or knob of butter will showcase your sea purslane perfectly.

Store in the fridge.
