Fruit confits

Our confits (sugar-cured fruits and fruit slices) are really special. For chefs who appreciate exceptional flavour and quality, our range is so versatile that they span every type of dish and menu. Grab a copy of our Australian Menu Planning Guide which includes ideas using the confits in a myriad of menu ideas.

We use glucose and trehalose (resurrection sugar) and varying marinating times as we slowly increase the sugar concentration to enhance the natural soft sweetness in the fruits while leaving some of their tartness.

We could just pickle the fruits in cane sugar (sucrose) syrup except that is just wouldn’t be good enough for our standards of health, quality and superior taste. You see our confits are ‘No Added Fructose’ and as fructose (one of the bad sugars) makes up half the sucrose molecule and we are drowning in sucrose these days, we came up with the best alternative there is – trehalose. This is a healthy micro-sugar that comes with a myriad of health benefits from anti-ageing to antioxidant.

So please try our confit of fruits in sweet or savoury dishes or enjoy them with cheeses or yoghurt. Several go well in champagne while other fruit confit are great in spirit based cocktails. You be the judge.

    • This is our newest confit product and is spectacularly delicious. We slice the Illawara plums and cure them in our unique glucose and trehalose mixture to produce a syrupy, deep purple, fully flavoured plum confit. Illawarra plum confit is great on artisan bread, damper, pancakes or waffles. Add some to sauces for the rich plum-pine characters and intense deep plum colour. You can even just spoon some over roasted meats as a garnish. Complementary flavours include garlic, ginger, wasabi, pine nuts, coconut cream.

    • New pack size – now in 250g (8.3oz) glass jars. We wild harvest plum sized, rainforest limes from private forests in sub-tropical Queensland and snap freeze them at their peak ripeness. The Rainforest limes get sliced and sugar-cured until the natural organic acids in the juice are perfectly matched and balanced with sweetness. You have to taste the result – it’s the best lime product you’ll ever try!

    • Wild rosella flowers are actually modified leaves or calyces for the botanists. However, as a foodie, all you need know is that the acid flowers in this fruit confit are sugar-cured using glucose and trehalose (fructose-free) until we are happy with the super-rich crimson syrup, the firm texture of the flowers and the perfect balance of acid crispness and sweetness.
