Lemon Myrtle - Dried Leaf
Lemon myrtle is a native tree to NSW rainforests. It possesses an amazingly crisp and refreshing aroma! It is great in baking when you want to add a lemon flavour without adding liquid or acidity associated with lemons. Lemon myrtle is an extremely versatile herb. It complements so many culinary delights, from fish & chicken to ice cream or sorbet. Alternatively, add to boiling water for a refreshing tea.
Its leaves contain the highest amount of citral (>90%) of any plant known in the world and its flavour and aroma show refreshingly intense citrus notes, often described as more lemony than lemon.
The leaves are cool dried (to prevent loss of essential oils) and then flaked. Store in a cool dry location out of direct sunlight.
