One of my creative creations heading to my Etsy store. I love using local materials for my craft work.

This is a Australan bushfoods salt and pepper spice kit. The pouch has been made from kangaroo tail leather wirh a bone buttion. The two glass bottles containing Saitbush and Dorrigo pepper. This spice kit is designed to be taken on bushwalks or camping trips and can easily be carried in a pocket or a backpack.FB_IMG_1669359169906.jpg

Contains of the kit.

Old Man Saltbush
(Atriplex nummularia)
Can be used as a substitute for regular salt with 30% less sodium. Saltbush works great as a rub on meats like lamb or pork. Can be added to salad dressings or used in charcuterie and sausage.

Dorrigo pepper
(Tasmannia stipitata)
Dorrigo Pepper has a punchy peppery flavor with a pleasant wood like fragrance. Can be added to stews and casseroles as a seasoning. Also used in meat rubs,bread and works well in egg dishes.
