Bush Tomato ~ Whole fruit, dried 50g by Warndu
Bush tomato (Desert Raisin or Kutjera) is a delight. Both savoury and sweet and packing a punch. We LOVE bush tomato and use it in everything.
These beauties are wild harvested in central Australia by an amazing group of Indigenous women. They have been in short supply in the past years so we are lucky to have them.
Try them ground and rubbed into your BBQ meat, on a cheese board or in stews and casseroles.
50g re-sealable bag Whole Fruit, dried.
◎ Common Name: Bush Tomato, Desert Rasin, Kutjera
◎ Scientific or Latin Name: Solanum centrale
◎ Comparison: Caramelised Vegemite, raisins
◎ Seasonality: All year dried
◎ Region: Arid
◎ Tasting Notes: Oh so wonderful when eaten fresh but the flavour profile of a dried one is also amazing, like a caramel, savoury carob crossed with sun-dried tomato. The fruits can actually be left to dry on the bush and collected months later. They are best ground, and can be used in just about any dish you like. Bush tomato has superior antioxidant capacity compared to the blueberry, which is renowned worldwide as a health-promoting fruit.
