Prins & Dingemanse sea asters are cultivated on a silty tidal marsh and owe their Dutch name to the shape of their leaves (ears). Like marsh samphire, sea asters have a delicious silty flavour and many preparation options. For example, sea asters are delicious in combination with fish, shellfish and crustaceans, but equally tasty as a salad.

|Usage / taste||
Sea aster is silty in flavour because it takes up salt water. However, it has a less salty flavour than marsh samphire. Sometimes sea aster is light grey in colour because it excretes surplus salt.
