Lemon Myrtle Tin 30g

Provenance: Lemon Myrtle herb is the dried and ground leaves of the Lemon Myrtle tree from the eastern sub tropical rainforests of Northern NSW and the more tropical Rainforest regions of South East Queensland and beyond..

If we had to chose a tree that encompasses all the advantages of planting, growing, harvesting, cooking and enjoying native foods it would have to be the Lemon Myrtle.
A magnificent subtropical rainforest plant in its own right, is also a beautiful specimen tree- bushy with low branches that have long tapering, deep green leaves and small bunches of clusters of tiny white, fluffy flowers in late summer and autumn. However, the most marvellous feature of this tree is its superb fragrance which is a blend of lemon, lemongrass and lemon verbena from the high levels in its leaves of its essential oil - citral.

Lemon Myrtle is probably the most well known of Australia's native herbs. It is an  intensely citrus flavoured and fragrant herb and has very high level of citral - an essential oil that imparts a lemon/lime, lemongrass and lemon verbena complex flavour.

With its intense citrus flavour, Lemon Myrtle is ideal with fish, seafood and white meats such as poultry, veal and pork. It's also great with all vegetables and is a natural seasoning with Asian style dishes as well as many desserts. Try it mixed through yoghurt, sour cream or mayonnaise for a lovely tangy accompaniment - perfect with so may things - curry, or top a baked potato with Lemon Myrtle Pesto. Lemon Myrtle also makes the best tea which is a great pick-me-up. Add into crème fraiche or cream or yoghurt for desserts. Do try it in baking too - Lemon Myrtle Shortbreads are just so good or try baked in cakes like Lemon Myrtle Torta Caprese  Lemon Myrtle goes so well with so many fruits and it may be sprinkled over mango, berries, banana and so many more. Add it to a fruit smoothie for extra zing or make a Mango Passionfruit and Lemon Myrtle Salsa to add to tacos,  dollop on freshly grilled fish or anything at all!
If you are using Lemon Myrtle in a cream based dessert or cake (dairy or otherwise) that requires gelatine, a good idea is to add the lemon Myrtle to the hot water and gelatine mix . The mild heat from the water will allow the essential oils to infuse and add this to the panna cotta, mousse, bavarois, cheesecake or a simple flavoured cream for a cake filling or topping.  Click here for more recipes

 Storing Lemon Myrtle

These dried ingredients must be kept airtight so as to not absorb moisture from the air. It is best kept in a dark place, such as inside a cupboard to mitigate the effects of oxidisation from light. This is not harmful but will cause the ingredient to discolour and lose some of their  phyto-chemical activity.
