50gm dried quandong (Australia's Wild Peach). Reconstitutes to approx 220gm when soaked in water. 

Quandong fruit can be dried and frozen for 8 years or more, without losing any flavour.  This lot is from the current season in the NSW Outback.

Quandongs were much valued for their medicinal properties.

Specialised uses included a form of tea which was drunk as a purgative.

Quandong tree roots were also ground down and used as an infusion for the treatment of rheumatism.

Quandong leaves and Quandong Kernels were crushed and mixed with saliva to produce a topical ointment for skin sores and boils.

Quandong Kernels were also eaten and sometimes crushed and used as a form of "hair conditioning oil".

Packed in resealable bags to minimise postage costs.

The listed weight is the shipping weight.

    I’m a commercial mead {honey wine} producer, I use the Quandongs for an Aussie version of my product. I produce 19 different meads from traditional to fruity meads.

    Quandongs

    As expected. Lots of taste either nibbled on dried or reconstituted. I find these better to use in cooking than frozen ones as the taste is more intense.

    I offerred a tast of Quandongs (reconstituted) to the ladies of the Mid North Coast CWA Group who were studying Quandongs as their Annual Native Fruit. They were totally delighted and highly impressed.

    The dried Quandong were reconstituted and sweetened slightly, giving a wonderful accompaniment to a cheese plater or yoghurt.

    My order arrived super fast and the product is just lovely.
    Rehydrate in some hot water and they are ready in less than ten minutes.
    I put them in syrup to decorate a cake and they looked great and tasted delicious.
