Bushmanland’s Local Ice Plant.
Succulent, crunchy, leaves with a fresh acidic taste.
The Arid Bushmanland region’s locally adapted Ice Plant is sourer than the Western Cape Variety. The taste is full bodied, bringing forth the essence of the Karoo soil.
Rinse well and roughly chop any accompanying stems.
Excellent addition to raw salsas or grain salads; use a whole raw leaf as a low carb cracker alternative, loaded up with spicy, creamy, or meat-based fillings; use lightly cooked in a stir fry; or as a spinach alternative.
* Notes: the degree of acidity and notes of flavour vary by season. Don’t add salt.
