Plant Based Single Origin Spice
The Aborigine Australian farmers are committed to improving and preserving the quality of their indigenous wattleseed crops, which has sustained them for centuries. Our wattleseed flourishes in the nutrient-rich soil-a beautiful red-of outback Australia. We love the decadent flavor it delivers to your desserts and the promising future it brings to the smaller farmers of indigenous crops.
There are several hundred acacia species native to Australia, but the wattleseed of culinary use comes from a relatively small number of acacia trees.
Acacia grows in outback Australia where for centuries the Australian Aborigines have understood the nutritional benefits of wattleseed. They have used it roots, barks, and seeds for medicinal purposes. Wattleseed has a low glycemic index, high fiber, and protein with no caffeine, and is an alternative to coffee.
Gathering and preparing wattleseed for consumption is painstaking and labor-intensive but in the end, a pinch of this potent spice goes a long way.
Wattleseed has a rich, toasty aroma that is faintly like coffee. Its flavor has notes of roasted hazelnuts and coffee with hints of cacao. Wattleseed makes a fabulous caffeine-free beverage; it can flavor ice cream, cheesecake, cookies, biscuits, sauces, and bread. My favorite use of wattleseed is in a decadent crème brûlée.
Comes in our signature airtight tin, which measures 2-1/2 inches in diameter and 1-3/4 inches in height.
