Coastal Ice is a native Australian herb and can be found growing wild amongst South Australia’s sand dunes. This green succulent acts as a ground cover and has large, fleshy leaves that appear to glisten. The beautiful, salty bubbles present on the underside of the leaves and stems provide a welcome crunch and delicate saltiness that is surprisingly refreshing.


Culinary Uses

Coastal Ice can be eaten fresh or cooked by steaming, stir-frying or blanching. Coastal Ice complements seafood dishes and is the perfect edible accent to a cheese platter.  Look for our Native Fresh Recipes coming soon.
