Happy to announce that the Oz Tukka stall at the Newcastle farmers market is now selling my kangaroo leather bushfoods spice kit. 20220724_101541.jpgOz Tukka is a really great local company with amazing range of bushfoods Their stall can usually be found at the Newcastle farmers markets at the showgrounds on most Sundays.FB_IMG_1658627359142.jpg

These kits are totally handcrafted and made from kangaroo leather. Each kit contains the following herbs and spices...

Contains:
Tasmanian Pepperberry
(Tasmannia lanceolata)
An amazing substitute for conventional pepper but with more of a herbal and nutty flavor profile. This Australian pepper delivers a sharper and hotter punch than it's conventional counterpart. Recommended to be added at the end of cooking time with dishes like stews or casseroles to deliver maximum flavor.

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 making.

Native Thyme
(Prostanthera incisa)
A complex flavor that has hints of oregano and sage but with its own earthy tones. A flavoursome herb to add to pasta dishes and casseroles. Also works great baked in a damper style bread.

Lemon Myrtle
(Backhousia citriodora)
One of the better known Australian bush foods with an intensely citrus smell and flavor. Can be added to curries to add a lemon flavor, baked in breads or made into a tea.

This sounds & looks great, & after use you are left with a set of glass containers & a handy leather pouch if you want to refill with your favourite herbs. Thanks for sharing HD.

Thanks mate, so yes you can refill with bushfoods from Oz Tukka or use more mainstream spices and herbs. Is a pocket kit to take into the bush to lasting a few meals.

This is really good, everything is reuseable and long lasting. A great improvement over the throw out mentality of today.
All the leather gear I make should last for years and years. I sell belts for $100 which sounds kind of pricey. But that belt will last over 10 years if you wear it every day.Go to a high street store and buy a "leather"belt from $20 and you are buying it again in a years time.20220618_153316.jpg

From a sustainability point of view it's better to buy high quality items that will last the course. Obviously we have a sort of disposable culture and mindset at present
