Is this marsh samphire (glasswort)? I picked it today on the tidal mud flats of the river Adur. I nibbled the top 5mm. It tasted juicy and salty. I've looked it up on Google Images and in Richard Mabey's Food For Free. I feel fairly confident that I've got it right but I'd really appreciate someone telling me who knows for sure before I go out and gather a plateful.
