What an Experience!!
We visited an amazing attraction today about 40km west of Albany. The Bushfood Factory and Café has a very varied menu. We had the curries, tried the smoked kangaroo and you cannot leave without having the wattleseed icecream. I am looking forward to introducing some of their spices into our breakfast menus. This is what we bought today:
An aroma like conventional pepper but with much more flavour. The berries contain a dye which adds a purple colour to the dishes. Check out this special effect in marinades, sauces, dressings or on the barbecue. The berries can be used in table grinders (Peppermills).
A flavour of concentrated sun-dried tomato and caramel, prickly and slightly bitter. Its use is very versatile, i.e. as sprinkle or seasoning for soups, sauces, marinades, meats, fish and cheese.
A flavour of chocolate, coffee and hazelnut. Its application is very versatile and Wattleseed can be used in sweet and savoury dishes. Fabulous in desserts, dairy desserts, baked goods, sauces and marinades.
Wild Lime Syrup
An absolute must with a seafood platter. It may also be used in dressings, sauces and marinades or for flavouring desserts (a unique replacement for lime juice). I am going to try it in my vodka :-)
Wild Lime Chutney
Wild Lime contains 3 times as much vitamin C as an orange. This chutney has a deliciously strong lime flavour. Its bitter, intense and prickly taste makes a perfect match with fish and seafood.
Follow the link and go their website and find many different products. Can't wait to try them all!!
Wattleseed Icecream will definitely feauture as a dessert on our menus.
