Australian Native Saltbush
Australian Native Saltbush is one of Australia’s best and most versatile native herbs. Like many of our native herbs, Saltbush was originally used medicinally by Indigenous Australians to aid in the healing of wounds or burns. Today, Saltbush leaves are widely utilised in cooking to add a delicious savoury, salty flavour as a healthier alternative to regular salt. An authentic taste of the Australian bush and one of our most versatile and most-used in our Natives range.$4.99
Australian Native Pepper Berry Leaf
Australian Native Pepper Berry Leaf, also known as ‘Mountain Pepper’ or ‘Tasmanian Native Pepper’, is one of Australia’s top native superfoods said to have four times the antioxidants of blueberries. This pepper is as delicious as it is healthy with a fruity peppery flavour that can be used in cooking or to season food when serving. Compared to our everyday pepper, Australian Native Pepper Berry Leaf has more of a herbal flavour and packs a spicer, sharper and hotter punch. After harvesting the leaves, we have dried them to lock in the flavour and aroma; the snap-lock seal on our barrier-proof packets also ensures it retains its flavour for many uses to come. An authentic taste of Australia.$4.99
