Strawberry Gum is a very rare tree originally from a small region of New South Wales. The leaves of the Strawberry Gum tree have an essential oil called Methyl cinnamate, which acts as a flavour enhancer to sweet or savoury dishes.
This Australian native spice will enhance the flavour of berries, tomato based sauces, dairy or coconut milk dishes such as custards, brulee, ice-cream, pannacotta. The spice has a great affinity with chocolate and makes wonderful truffles.
Once again the health benefits of Australian native food stands out. The leaves are high in antioxidants and are antifungal and antibiotic, assisting with the microflora balance of the gut.
