The round silvery-green toothed-edge leaves can be added fresh to salads, stir-fry and meat marinades, or dried and used as seasonings. Wonderful addition to bread, grills and pasta, as a crust on meat and vegetables. Can be used as a direct substitute for salt.
Dried ground leaves of the Saltbush, picked fresh, dehydrated to capture the salty herb flavour and ground ready for you to use.
