Sooooo good like a spiced toffee apple powder. Muntries pack more than twice the punch of a blueberry and grow on a small shrub. This powder is a fantastic addition to cooking, baking, drinks and deserts.
These little beauties are found on low-growing shrubs that are native to the south coast of Australia. With a spicy apple flavour and a pretty red and green tinge, your kids will think they have won the fairy lottery in apples and eat them like candy. Much like they used to be traditionally, they can be used dried or pounded and made into a paste and dried into a strap.
