Bush Tomato

Bush tomato (Desert Raisin or Kutjera) is a delight. Both savoury and sweet and packing a punch. We LOVE bush tomato and use it in everything.

These beauties are wild harvested in central Australia by an amazing group of Indigenous women. They have been in short supply in the past years so we are lucky to have them.

Try them ground and rubbed into your BBQ meat, on a cheese board or in stews and casseroles. This comes in a 50g resealable bag as a dried whole fruit.

USE: We send Bush Tomato as whole dried fruit because the powder oxidises quickly and loses its flavour. To get the most of this incredible flavour we recommend using it whole, or crushing it in a mortar & pestle to make a powder right before you use it.

NOTE:  Bush Tomato can NOT be shipped overseas as it is a seed. This items is only shipped Australia Wide. PLEASE do not on ship it overseas. Protect the IP of our First Nations Food.

A wonderful flavour

I am just learning about how to use these best but eaten straight out of the packet they are delicious- crunchy, chewy, caramel and tangy. I think they will add lovely depth to many foods as an alternative tomato flavour.
