Product Description

These Australian native seeds when roasted have a savoury, pork-crackling-like flavour (SML PKT)

Botanical Name: Acacia coriacea, a variety of wattle seed.

Other Names: Wirewood, Dogwood , Wiry Wattle. (Called desert oak as it resembles certain species of Hakea and Grevillea in appearance). Not to be confused with the Casuarina  Allocasuarina decaisneana which is also called Desert Oak.

Description & Use:

There are only a small number of edible wattles, the others being poisonous, therefore the gathering of one’s own Wattleseed should only be conducted under expert guidance. The Desert Oak Wattleseed of culinary use is always roasted and ground, a process that gives it an appetizing coffee-like aroma and roasted pork-like taste. Desert Oak flavours ice-cream and desserts, and when used with other spices such as Coriander Seed, imparts a pleasant, barbecued taste to meats, especially full-flavoured seafood such as Salmon and Tuna.

 

Recipe for Desert Oak Roasted Nuts:

1/2 cup raw macadamias

1/2 cup raw cashews

2 tsp desert oak seeds

1 tsp Okkah or Dukkah

1/2 tsp olive oil

1/2 tsp salt

Add all ingredients to a hot pan and toast for 5-7 minutes, shaking the pan, until golden.  If serving later, cool completely before storing.
