All About Bush Foods: Traditional and Commercial Uses

Bush foods - or bush tucker - have been consumed for thousands of years in Australia, and it makes us unique in the world when it comes to cuisine. For most of the time humans have been consuming bush foods they have done so on a non-cultivated, non-commercial basis. In recent decades however, some of Australia's bush tucker is being harvested commercially and sold around the world. Many will be familiar with our native meats - kangaroo, crocodile and emu - but there are dozens of plants and fruits that can form nutritious and very tasty additions to our diet. These foods include bush tomato, Davidson plums, Kakadu plums, macadamia nuts, mountain pepper and pepperberry, native mint, quandong, wattleseed and wild rosella. This highly engaging and interesting learning resource examines a range of Australian bush foods and looks at both traditional and commercial uses.
