Strawberry Gum is a native Australian plant found in Eastern Australian, mainly around the New South Wales area. Indigenous Australians traditionally chew the leaves to enjoy the unique fruity flavour. This aromatic dried Strawberry Gum leaf is wild-harvested from Victoria and has an intense berry flavour that is delicious in food and hot or cold beverages, a fabulous addition to any Bushfood pantry.
How to Use:
This exciting Bushfood is wonderful in sweet and, surprisingly, savoury recipes. Try aromatic Strawberry Gum in chutneys or sauces for poultry, pork, lamb or beef. Combine this delicious berry flavoured leaf with chilli in seafood recipes, or sprinkle over sweet potato before roasting. Strawberry Gum is scrumptious in puddings, baked goodies and Chia seed desserts. Pairing beautifully with vanilla bean; lovely with poached fruit or compote and yoghurt. Try adding dried Strawberry Gum to a cheesecake base, fruit crumble topping or muesli bar recipe. Create a delicious berry-flavoured herbal tea infusion, or try adding dried Strawberry Gum to your favourite loose-leaf black tea for an extra fruity note. Iced Strawberry Gum tea is a great base for a fruity cocktail; just add mint and sliced citrus fruit for a fresh, cooling summer drink.
