finocchi(o) di mare

/fee-NOHK-kee(oh) dee MAH-reh/

Samphire (US: sea bean). A fleshy plant which grows on rocks near the sea. Can be used as a salad green or as a cooked vegetable. It has a short season and is not a cultivated crop, so it is quite uncommon. It may be pickled in white wine vinegar with a little sugar.
