Solanum centrale


"A super addition to any tomato-based sauce. So far I’ve added it to both Italian and Moroccan tomato sauces and look forward to trying more recipes." - Kat


AUSTRALIAN GROWN

SUSTAINABLY SOURCED

NO GLUTEN OR WHEAT

Bush Tomato or Kutjera (Akatyerr) is a deep caramel, sun-dried flavoured spice that is a great flavoursome addition in tomato-based recipes, or when sprinkled in a roast or over chicken. 


Sourced in Central Australia by First Nation Communities, it has recently begun cultivation by some communities in order to increase supply and quality. 


The ripe fruit is dried and then ground into an easy-to-apply spice that is great in chutneys and Italian dishes.

How To Use

Bush Tomato makes a great spice especially when paired with any slow cooked, warm, hearty meals. Sprinkling over a homemade lasange or even if used with a marinade for chicken, it'll impart a gorgeous sun-dried tomato flavour with sweet caramel notes.
