You can buy pickled samphire in jars but I find it's normally pickled beyond recognition and a horrible grey-green colour. As samphire is in season now, simply pour some good-quality wine vinegar over fresh, trimmed samphire and leave it for 24-48 hours in a plastic container or non-reactive bowl firmly covered with cling film. Give the samphire an occasional stir. If you're not eating it immediately, store in a cool place in a sterilised Kilner jar.
