How to Use/Benefits

Saltbush can be used as delicious herb that is lower in sodium than table salt, so acts as a terrific alternative. Pour a teaspoon into stews, soups, or curries, or simply sprinkle over roasted potatoes for a deep, rich, and salty addon. Try frying in extra virigin olive oil to add a crunchy, salty garnish that you can put in salads.
