Flowers are cream coloured and are followed by small woody capsules. The glossy green leaves are intensely aromatic. E.olida is classified as a threatened species in the wild, but is becoming more common in cultivation due to its essential oil and spice qualities. The leaf of E.olida is distilled for its crystal-like essential oils used in flavouring and perfumery. E. olida leaf is also used as a dried spice product in bushfood cooking, especially with fruit; and in herbal teas. It has high anti-oxidant activity. It is also known as olida and forestberry herb.

Description

Australian Strawberry Gum is growing in popularity.  It’s a beautiful bushfood herb to cook with and imparts a wonderful berry-like aromatic flavour.

A great way to show off this unique flavour  is to cook sweet potato or any vegetables in foil, just add a pinch with a little salt and wrap in foil, into the oven to cook.  OutbackChef gets it’s Strawberry Gum directly from the grower who harvests from big old trees on a sheep property.  The leaves are hung to dry in a shed, out of the sun, then milled and sent to OutbackChef’s warehouse. Try OutbackChef’s Strawberry Gum Tea  a great way to enjoy a brilliant native herb.
