As nature starts to think about shutting up shop for the year, foragers find themselves drawn to the coast to get their greenery hit, where plants that have evolved to cope with more extreme weather can still be found growing quite comfortably. Although a smaller selection of plants are found here, they tend to be found in greater numbers, and if the local council have inexplicably been round with a strimmer (don't get us started), then you will even find that most have a second wind and produce some lush, green, new growth right into Winter.
In this mix you can expect to find Sea Purslane, Sea Beet and Sea Aster. Discard any tough stems, give them a good rinse and go easy on the salt (but heavy on the oil/butter - you will thank us later) and what you are left with is a versatile, delicious green mix that can be enjoyed in a number of ways. All species included can be eaten raw as part of a salad, tossed into a stir fry, sauteed gently as a side green or even slapped on some toast for a lavish brunch.
