Macadamias

We only use sea salt, which doesn't contain additives, and our nuts are dry roasted at a low temperature to ensure the goodness is kept in.

Our chocolate-coated variety ensures you the perfect fusion of whole macadamia nut with dairy milk Cadbury chocolate. We guarantee 33% whole nut - two parts chocolate, 1 part nut. Most other processors use halves rather than wholes, and provide only 20-25% macadamia nut.

Bush Food Australia

Info below from their website

Prior to the white man settling in Australia, traditional aboriginal people lived off the land as nomadic hunters and gatherers for over 40,000 years. Over 1000s of generations they have acquired the skills to use the natural resources nature has to offer. Fully understanding what could be eaten, used for medicine etc. From this we now have a rich knowledge of unique natural Australian ingredients that have distinctive tastes, to this country. Some plants have been accepted into mainstream western ideas too, for their tastes, health/medical properties… From the dry arid interior to the lush rainforests.

At Bush Food Australia, we:

  • supply commercial quantities of wattle seed roasted and ground (Acacia victoriae) for the Australian native food, cosmetic, revegatation (Raw Seed), dietary supplement and pharmaceutical industries.

  • supply many other native foods and materials on request.

  • work hand in hand with the South Australian Government and private land owners to collect wild harvested seed. Permits are gained to collect on crown land under strict guidelines, to protect the environment, for future harvest.

  • are constantly seeking ways to refine our collection, cleaning, roasting and grinding methods to ensure a first grade product.

  • support research into nutrition and health, production and food technology and recipe development.

Playing With Fire

https://www.playingwithfire.com.au

Fresh produce and value add.

Information from their website.

Playing with Fire is owned by Gus Donaghy and Rebecca Barnes. We found inspiration one day when wandering through the bush we discovered the delights of native raspberries. A trial crop was planted a few months later and was a huge success. Our appetite for Australias indigenous foods was born and still grows today. We are fascinated by the variety, nutrition, taste, colours and smells of foods available and largely ignored by white man. We operate from beautiful Ballina by the Sea in northern New South Wales and have become passionate about this regions rainforests and coastal heaths.
Some years on from our original discovery and the potential for these fruits has only grown. We have been supplying rainforest fruits for testing and research to Food Science Australia . Their research has shown these fruits are literally loaded with anti-oxidants and health-giving nutrition. Clinical trials are underway to investigate further bioactivity including antimutagenic and anti-cancer activities. we'll keep you posted....................

Fresh and dried Lemon Myrtle and Mountain Pepper Leaf and berry

Information from their website

Lemon Myrtle and Mountain Pepper, fresh or dried, may be purchased direct from South Australia’s premium grower Tumbeela Native Bushfoods in the Adelaide hills.

Tumbeela is a small but imaginative family business looking for something different, something special, something to make good food even better.

We supply premium hotels, restaurants, innovative cafes and the better bakeries and have a delightful range of native products for home use.

Lemon Myrtle leaf: what is it, where to buy it and how to use it?

Lemon Myrtle leaf, fresh or dried, is a game changer. Creative chefs are using it in stunning ways across their repertoires from entrees to deserts. Home cooks too are responding to the magic of Lemon Myrtle, using it to create new taste horizons for favourite dishes.

The leaves of the Lemon Myrtle when crushed or infused exhibit an exquisite flavour not unlike lemon, limes and lemon grass.  Lemon Myrtle has a natural affinity with seafood, chicken dishes, pork and curries. It is superb in cakes, ice cream, pasta and soups.
It makes a refreshing, delicate and calming tea. it is both versatile and unique.

Quite simply Lemon Myrtle is a winner and it is Australian.

Mountain Pepper leaf: fresh or dried

Mountain Pepper leaf is another stunner, subtle but definitive. The leaves are traded as fresh, whole, dried or ground. While not a true pepper the leaves are hot, zesty and full
of pepper like flavours. the heat dissipates with cooking, leaving the soft flavours of the Mountain Pepper sitting under the flavour of your dish.

Ideal for roasts, curries, tomato or cheese dishes, pate and pasta – infact any dish which calls for pepper.
