We need to thank Mike Mike for introducing us to and sharing some of his saltwort with us. The specimen we have is not growing in a tidal zone, the customary home of saltwort, and therefore is not salty to taste. The leaves, more like needles, are crisp and juicy with a grassy almost piney but not bitter note. Our saltwort is now planted in our garden and is already growing and developing in actuality and in ideas. Even though it is normally looked at as ground cover and occasionally a weed we see many opportunities to weave it into our cooking.
