Air dried quandong halves   (Australia's Wild Peach). 100gm pouch

100gm Reconstitutes to approx 500gm when soaked in water. 

Quandong fruit can be dried and frozen for 8 years or more, without losing any flavour.  

Quandongs were much valued for their medicinal properties.

Think of quandongs in recipes where you would use stonefruit, or tamarillos. A beautiful colour, they look like a tamarillo, and they are fleshy and chewy and tart. They work really well with duck, and would be great in curries and perfect with slow-roasted lamb shoulder. And of course they make a wonderful tart and / or jam

 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.
