Description & Use
These Australian native berries are pale tan to dark brown and have a fruity, caramel-like flavour and slightly tangy acidity. Bush tomato flavours stews and casseroles while the akudjura powder blends well with coriander seed and wattleseed to flavour meats from chicken and beef to full-flavoured fish such as salmon and tuna.
