Ruby Saltbush – Bush Tucker

I have lots of Ruby Saltbush in my garden and I love to snack on these sweet little magenta berries. Sometimes I put them in salads and I’ve read that you can dry the leaves and crush them as a spice. The magenta berries can also be used to make a red dye.

The berries are supposed to be an anti-scorbutic (something that stops scurvy) as they are high in Vitamin C. They also have a high Vitamin E content.
