busket bjergte


Salal or salal berry. A plant of the heather family with leathery leaves producing dark blue 'berries', which are actually swollen sepals Both berries and leaves are edble and said to be appetite suppressants. Traditionally they have been used as sweeteners and flavourings in fish dishes by native people of North America but are now more commonly used in jams and jellies and in pies. The mild sweetness of the salal berry compliments the tartness of the Oregon berry.
