Aniseed Myrtle // Syzygium anisatum

The similar smells and flavours we're used to can be easily found within our native flora. A rare native rainforest species, Aniseed Myrtle imparts an aniseed flavour reminiscent of liquorice in cooking, baking, and desserts. Aboriginal Australians used Aniseed Myrtle as a traditional medicine on cuts, wounds, and in cooking for its powerful liquorice flavour.

The natural essential oil found within the leaf is what gives the sweet flavour. When cooking with Aniseed Myrtle, it is recommended that you use the herb in the last 10 minutes to avoid diluting the essential oil, and thus the flavour. 


Culinary Uses:

Sprinkle in a hearty stew, vegetarian curry, gingerbread, white meat. 

Nutritional Properties: 

Containing anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties, it is dense with antioxidants and is rich in important nutrients such as folate, magnesium, and Vitamin E.
