Old Man Saltbush, also known as Bluegreen or Giant Saltbush is a versatile plant and great Bush Food. Adapted to arid conditions with saline soils, Saltbush is native to most parts of Australia. The United Nations Carbon Emission Trading Scheme has identified Old Man Saltbush as assisting with the reduction of greenhouse warming. Indigenous Australians have traditionally utilised the seeds and leaves of Saltbush, which are collected and ground and used in damper and to flavour foods. The leaves were also sometimes eaten fresh, or added to meat as it cooked. This dried and ground Old Man Saltbush leaf has been wild-harvested in South Australia, where it grows pesticide-free. It has a soft, salty flavour – slightly earthy – and can be used as a direct substitute for salt as a seasoning or condiment.


How to Use:

The gentle savoury flavour of ground Old Man Saltbush, salty and earthy, adds a wonderful flavour to fish, meat and vegetable dishes. Use it as a substitute for rock or sea salt in soups and hotpots, combine with herbs or chilli to coat meat and seafood before cooking, or add to any marinade to truly bring the flavours out.

Sprinkle a little over vegies before roasting or on salads before the final toss. This Bush Tucker spice is perfect for the BBQ, sprinkle while cooking or use at the table ‘to taste’. Lovely in home-made bread, too. You can replace any salt, in any recipe, or as a daily table salt with this delicious Australian Bush Tucker hero.

Ingredients:

Old Man Salt Bush (Atriplex nummularia), leaves, dried and ground.

Pesticide Free.
