Paperbark

Paperbark is a natural product that is used as a platter liner or when used as a cooking wrap, imparts a delicate smokey flavor from oils in the paperbark. This technique is the easiest way to smoke and cook meats in bark on a hot plate, char-grill or in a pan. Paperbark is low in tannins and while indigestible is harmless if consumed accidentally.
Uses: This product is perfect to wrap fish or chicken in with a light sprinkle of lemon myrtle then put in an oven to bake or put on a dry hot plate. It is also popular as a platter base. If the product is dry, dampen with water to make pliable. (each sheet is approx. 45cm X 30cm in size.)

Quandong

Flavor: Mildly tart apricot and peach
Appearance:  Bright red fruit
Uses:  Sauces (meat or dessert), garnish. Helpful Hints - Do not over-cook. Simmer gently in sauce or apple juice. Enhance with orange juice. Do not over-sweeten. The seed kernels are only safe to eat if well roasted to a milk chocolate brown, which inactivates an unsafe compound.
Storage: Dried
