Serving suggestion

Stack three fritters using some beetroot jam as the ‘food glue’. Garnish the plate with dobs of jam and top the fritters with the rocket.


If you have trouble finding the Australian flavoured cheeses in your local supermarket, try adding a selection of Australian Herbs* and Seasonings to ordinary cheddar. *
