Ready to give Lemon Myrtle a go in your next recipe?
If you havnt tried this strong bush herb then it’s time you did. Lemon myrtle is without doubt one of the best known bush herbs, it has an extremely strong flavour and aroma and has been part of Aboriginal bush medicine and a favourite bushtucker herb for centuries. Go easy when first using it, so many people just dont realize how strong this bushfood herb really is, and it does seem to go thru any dressing, baked goods or roasts and make it’s presence felt. I known many people, sadly, who have tried lemon myrtle in their cooking, used too much got scared of trying again….just start using a little to get used to it. Like so many of Australian native herbs and spices, they are strong and definately make their presence felt.
