  • Anise Myrtle

    From: $19.04
    Clear selection

    Anise Myrtle grows in the sub-tropical rainforest regions of eastern Australia and is related to the lemon myrtle tree. Indigenous Australians traditionally use Anise Myrtle to flavour food and to make a revitalising beverage.

    With a distinct aniseed-licorice flavour, this dried Anise Myrtle leaf from Northern NSW has an essential oil profile comparable to true aniseed. Use it as a Bushfood substitute in any dish that you would normally flavour with Aniseed.

    Anise Myrtle can be used wherever you use Star Anise, Fennel or aniseed liqueur to give a great aniseed-licorice flavour to your recipes and hot drinks.

    Steep 1-2 teaspoons of Anise Myrtle in boiled water for several minutes to create a refreshing herbal tea, add it to you favourite Chai blend in place of Star Anise, or pop a pinch into your favourite hot chocolate recipe.

    Anise Myrtle is a wonderful Bushfood addition to any spice blend – to use in curries and hotpots, or combined with seeds for dipping with crusty bread and oil. Add a little to a stir fry – delicious with chilli and seafood, a perfect accompaniment for pork. Toss vegetables in Anise Myrtle and coconut or olive oil before roasting, or sprinkle over any salad for a tasty aniseed lift. Great in dips, salad dressings and hot sauces.

    Replace aniseed liqueurs in savoury or sweet recipes with Anise Myrtle for a truly delightful alcohol free licorice flavour. Anise Myrtle adds a unique flavour to fresh baked bread, muffins and cookies, and is truly wonderful in rich fruit cakes and steamed winter puddings.

    Ingredients:

    Anise Myrtle (Backhousia anisata), dried and ground.

    Clear selection

  • Australian Baking Powder- Aluminium Free

    From: $6.00
    Clear selection

    Baking powder is a raising agent that is commonly used in cake-making and causes pancakes, waffles, breads, and cakes to rise. This product is aluminium-free.

    How to Use:

    Usually, you should mix all of the dry ingredients with the baking powder and only then add the liquid. That keeps the baking powder from reacting until the end of the mixing process. Many recipes tell you to mix only briefly, which minimizes the escape of the gas from the batter. It is also important to get your cake mixture into the oven quickly once the ‘wet’ ingredients have been added to the ‘dry’ ingredients. Usually the ratio of baking powder to flour is 1 to 2 teaspoons of baking powder for 1 cup of flour (or 5 to 10 grams of baking powder for 140 grams of flour).

    You can also make self-raising flour from plain flour using baking powder. For every cup of plain flour add 2 teaspoons of baking powder and mix well.

    Ingredients:

    Bicarbonate of Soda, Cream of Tartar & Organic Rice Flour <1%

  • Australian Chia Seeds

    From: $3.89
    Clear selection

    Chia seeds are an amazingly versatile food. Chia originated in Mexico and is botanically part of the Mint family.

    Chia seeds can be ground, soaked or sprouted. The ground meal of Chia, called Pinole, is perfect in porridge, cakes and raw food treats. Suitable in all grain free recipes, add some to your quinoa porridge for a great start to the day, or in bread, cake and muffin mixes. Whole seeds are best eaten after soaking. Add seeds to water or juice at a ratio of 1:10 and allow to soak for a few hours, to create a gelatinous consistency to add to smoothies or juice. Dilute further in a bottle of water with sliced lime, fresh mint and lemon grass to make a refreshing spritzer. Soak seeds in coconut cream (about 1:8) for a firmer set ‘pudding’. Add cacao/ mango/banana/berries/dates, and enjoy as is; or perfect for a dairy free ‘cheesecake’ filling. Organic Chia is also fantastic sprouted. Try sprouts in salads, sandwiches, wraps, raw cracker and Essene bread recipes, or green smoothies. Hint: For a quick and easy start to busy mornings, pre-soak Chia seeds the night before.

  • Australian Pink Lake Salt Medium

    From: $3.75
    Clear selection

    This Australian Pink Salt is from a lake in Western Victoria, which is fed by natural salt aquifers. The lake dries out in the Summer, leaving beds of beautiful mineral rich pink salt. In collaboration with the Barengi Gadjin Land Council, who represents the Wimmera’s traditional land owners, a small amount of pink lake salt is hand-harvested annually. By utilising this traditional knowledge, every effort is taken to minimise the harvest’s impact on the land.   The gourmet pink salt is then naturally sun dried, to produce a delectable savoury flavour. This unique salt is a delicious addition to recipes and can be used as a convenient and flavoursome condiment. It imparts a rich flavour that enhances the taste of any dish.

    This medium Pink Lake Salt is a perfect all-purpose salt for convenient use as a condiment at the table, as a recipe ingredient, or for baking. Add a pinch to porridge or smoothies to bring out the flavours. Use it in recipes during cooking or lightly sprinkle ground salt over dishes when serving.                                                                                                                                                            Pink lake salt is suitable for use in a grinder or mill. At the table, serve pink salt in a small dish or salt crock rather than a shaker. It also works wonderfully in a mortar and pestle with fresh herbs or dried spices. Try it with sesame, coriander and cumin seeds, with a few peppercorns for a delicious savoury sprinkle or as an accompaniment to dipping oil and crusty bread.

    Ingredients:

    Australian Pink Lake Salt.

    Preservative Free, Non GMO.
