Sea Blite is a native Australian herb and can be found growing wild around much of South Australia’s coastline and estuarine salt marshes. Sea Blite is a low straggling plant with smooth, glaucous leaves that will turn a reddish colour in winter. The leaves are tiny, round and pointed (similar to a spruce) with yellow flowers.  


Culinary Uses

Sea Blite will impart a pleasant, salty flavour to a dish and in small quantities, makes a nice addition to a salad. Sea Blite can be cooked with other vegetables to enhance flavour and add a natural saltiness. Look for our Native Fresh Recipes coming soon. 


Selecting the best produce

Fresh, quality herbs, will appear as though they have just been picked with plump looking leaves.  Look for produce that has healthy stems with no signs of yellowing or wilting.


Storing

It is important that herbs are expertly handled during transportation. Herbs should be kept covered and away from refrigeration fans.
