Desert Quandongs (native peach) are a versatile healthy snack with a flavour somewhere between peach, apricot and rhubarb. As one of Australia’s native superfoods, Quandongs contain antioxidants and essential minerals like zinc, calcium, magnesium, iron, vitamin E and folate. They have been a staple food and important source of nutrition for Indigenous Australians for thousands of years, and were also an important food to the first European settlers and explorers who used this high vitamin C fruit to help fight scurvy.
Quandongs can be eaten whole as a nutritious snack, brewed to make hot or iced tea, or incorporated into many different sweet and savoury dishes.
Made in Australia, supporting indigenous communities and small farmers.
How to Use Quandongs:
Hot or iced tea: just simmer 6 to 8 Quandong halves in 1 litre of water for approximately 15 minutes. Enjoy it hot or store chilled to add flavour and nutrition to iced drinks and smoothies. Once you have strained the tea be sure not to discard the Quandongs - eat them for a hit of nutrition and flavour.
Drop just one Quandong half into any other Roogenic tea brew to bring a hit of nutrition and very subtle peach flavour. Be sure to reuse in a brew 5 times and then eat the remaining rehydrated Quandong.
