Samphire in vinegar is a typical product of Puglia and a Traditional Agricultural Food Product (PAT) of the region, produced mainly in the area of Salento.

It is a herb sea that grows spontaneously mainly along the coastal areas of the south-east and north-west of Salento.


The preparation of Samphire in vinegar is made by simply choosing the tender part of the plant and by inserting it in airtight glass containers.

This is then covered with vinegar and allowed to rest for at least 30 days before consuming.

Samphire is usually used in salads, to stuff sandwiches, to season friselle, or as a side dish.
