    The MUNTRIE BERRY harvest has come early this year! We are excited to offer you the opportunity to snap some up for your home cooking, restaurant, or school kitchen. 

    What are Muntrie Berries? 
    They are a delicious native fruit, about the size of a blueberry, that offers a delicious apple custard flavour. And they have twice the antioxidant profile of a blueberry! Healthy & delicious. 

    Botanical name: Kunzea pomifera, 
    Common name: Emu apple
    Region: Southern part of South Australia & western Victoria
    Harvest by: Matthew Koop, a well-known passionate advocate for bushfoods.


    How to you use Muntrie Berries?
    Firstly, these freeze really well! I usually buy in bulk and store in the freezer to use over the year. Like most fruits, you can develop the flavour of muntries through cooking, adding sugar to sweeten and enhance the flavour. 

    Muntries are delicious in cakes and muffins (as a substitute for apples).
    I often stew them up with apples to extend the volume, the apples will take on the flavour of the muntries - I love this in a fruit crumble. 

    Muntries are fabulous cooked up in a sauce for pork, offering a unique Australian delicious flavour.

    Enjoy fresh, as you would blueberries. 

    Pre Orders close on February 18th for a late Feb harvest. 
    You can collect your orders from Saltbush Kitchen in Ballarat on the 2nd & 3rd of March.
