The Australian bush has a lot of food to offer whether it is kangaroo, wattle, lemon myrtle or another rare ingredient.
Duck breast smoked in paperbark and served with enoki and shiitake mushrooms and Illawarra Plum Sauce.
Rosella jam is made from the fleshy red calyx and bracts that surround the green seedpod of the plant. Harvest the crop before it becomes tough and the seedpod discolours. You will need to half fill a 9-litre bucket with rosella fruit for the following recipe- or you can adjust the amounts accordingly. Rosella seedlings are available through local nurseries. Six home grown plants will provide plenty of fruit for several batches of jam. Individual plants grow around 1.5m high and 1m wide.
This recipe works wonders on kangaroo meat, but as an all-purpose recipe it can be used just as easily on beef, lamb, pork and chicken for the same tender results. Kangaroo meat is usually cheaper than other meats and has a rich flavour, but because it is extremely lean it is easy to over cook, becoming tough and dry. The good news is that all these factors make it perfect for curries, and combined with a slow cooker you have a foolproof way to guarantee tenderness.
A tangy refreshing cordial with a unique Australian flavour that kids & adults can enjoy. This cordial keeps at least for a year.
Duck roasted can be very dry but this is where the oven bag helps. I have suggested 2-4 ducks as one may cook too tough to eat. When slow cooked, they will fall apart and become very tender. Remove the fat from cooled juices and store duck in this. It is very good cold. To help remove pin feathers, try singeing over a gas flame.
