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.

    Quandong relish

    Posted by Margaret on 23rd Mar 2016

    I followed Maggie Beers recipe for Parmesan custard tart with quandong relish.
    At first I thought it was too tough but with extra liquid and further simmering I had a delightful peachy, tangy relish that will complement many dishes. Loved it
