Article on salicornia

Fascinating article in the LA Times about salicornia and the scientist (Carl Hodges) who has dedicated the last forty years to cultivating this crop in briney water via aquaducts that would bring in rising ocean waters to nourish the salicornia - for fuel and food - here's the link:


Has anyone ever seen/eaten this plant? It's also known as sea asparagus...


Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away... and you have their shoes.

I ate it on a Marine Biology field trip to Wallop's Island, VA. It is delicious and crunchy and evidently very good for you. Have been hoping to see someone make it available in the market.
