Australian Myrtles to Use in Cooking.
Cinnamon Myrtle has a subtle cinnamon flavour and is an amazing native Australian ingredient to add to curries, casseroles and slow-cooked stews. Lemon Myrtle, however, has a sweet lemon flavour due to the high citral content, making it the perfect native ingredient to add to cream-based dishes, sorbets, and grilled meats. Aniseed Myrtle has a subtle liquorice flavour and scent, add it to your teas, desserts and ice creams.
Australian Bushfoods to Use As Spices.
Pepperberries are a native Australian bushfood that have a strong pepper flavour with fruity notes that builds in heat. Tasmanian Pepperberries are antioxidant-rich and have been found to naturally reduce inflammation. Use the Native Australian berries as an ingredient in burgers, pasta, soups and stews. If you’re looking to add a flavour similar to sundried tomatoes with a sweet-salty caramel-like flavour, try Australian Bush Tomatoes. This native fruit has been a staple bushfood source for Indigenous communities for generations. They’re rich in antioxidants, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, iron, copper, folate, zinc, magnesium, calcium and contain selenium, a rare mineral that naturally boosts metabolism.

The native Australian spice is low in G.I and high in protein and has a stunning coffee-chocolate flavour, perfect in pasta, bread and desserts.
