    • Fruit balsamic is our authentic Australian equivalent to reduced, aged balsamic vinegar (only I think it far more complex and interesting). It has a base of wild rosella for the fruitiness which is enhanced and amplified with some aniseed myrtle. We then add those Maillard products for the addictive roasted, toasty notes using Wattleseed extract and soy and inject a little sweetness with mirin (Japanese rice wine) and palm sugar. Lastly, some pungency and aromatics are all essential and alpine pepper and paperbark smoke fulfill this role. So how do you use it? Drizzle some on a plate and place cold meats and cheeses or a chicken and mescalin salad or some smoked seafood. Use as a pasta drizzle as a highlight or over some roasted chicken or twice-cooked duck. Use it over eggs, add to mayonnaise, try it on fish or add a dash to meat sauces. Ingredients: mirin, white vinegar, rosella, palm sugar, soy sauce, smoke oil, wattleseed extract, alpine pepper, aniseed.

    • 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.

    • The deep purple colour of Illawarra plum sauce comes from anthocyanins which are antioxidants and therefore highly beneficial to your health so not only do Illawarra plum products taste great but they are good for you too. The flavour of Vic Cherikoff’s Illawarra plum sauce is plum-like but with the characteristic resinous pine flavour of the fruits of this coastal rainforest tree (also known as the brown pine plum). To enhance and develop this flavour component, a terrific garnish for any dish finished with Illawarra plum sauce is toasted pine nuts.

    • Kakadu plum freeze dried is made from the world’s highest fruit source of vitamin C. However, there are a few considerations of which we should be aware when we choose the best kakadu plum freeze-dried product if we want to boost our nutritional intake.

    • Lemon aspen juice is a brand new citrus somewhere in between lemon and grapefruit with a hint of menthol as a late finish. Use it instead of lemon and never use other citrus to ‘extend’ the flavour. It actually negates the taste completely. Even just a twist of orange will kill the otherwise intense lemon aspen characters.

    • Lemon Aspen Syrup is exciting as it can best be compared to a brand new citrus and we all know how popular and versatile ordinary lemon can be. The citrus flavour in our syrup is complemented with the menthol/eucalypt top notes characteristic of lemon aspen. This makes our product far more interesting than conventional citrus. So. How is it used? The obvious and simplest use is as a pour-over syrup for pancakes, desserts, ice cream and pastries. However, the syrup also complements poultry, pork and seafood, red meats and shellfish as a substitute for honey glazed dishes.

    • Lemon myrtle sprinkle could be considered even more lemony than lemon myrtle because of its unique formulation. It is a blend of the best quality lemon myrtle leaf; wild, rainforest lime pulp and lemon aspen pulp (specially dried in the dark and milled at sub-zero temperatures) which provide a hint of acid; and the aromatics of lemon myrtle are further enhanced by using encapsulated lemon myrtle essential oil. Finally, there’s some anise myrtle which is a good source of trans-anethole.

    • This infused oil is powered by essential oils from lemon myrtle, anise myrtle and rainforest lime oil. It is prepared as an extra strength formulation to introduce minimum quantity for maximum impact. Ideal for chocolate making, fine desserts, adding a top note to sweet or savory sauces and dressings and even adding the characteristic lemon, lime, lemongrass notes to seasonings, stuffing, pre-dust and coatings.

    • Lemon Ironwood Syrup is a sublime mix of maple and lemon myrtle flavours. The surprise with this syrup is the timing of the flavours because the first sensation is the sweetness, then the maple and finally, the aromatic notes of the citrusy lemon myrtle come through. The obvious use is as a straight substitute for maple syrup but our product can also work brilliantly over grilled or roasted meats and seafood, poultry and shellfish, even vegetables. In fact, anywhere you need some subtle aromatics that are simply divine.
