Bush Tucker....


If you happen to find yourself lost amongst the towering gigantic eucalyptus trees and some strange looking wildlife, and dry red soil on the ground, you know that you're in an australian bushland....


Probably the very first thing that will come to your now slowly dehydrating brain is how are you going to survive out there, and what the hell will you eat....? So perhaps if we try to survive the aboriginis way, probably a handful of these yummy-juicy grub will sustain you with your much needed nurishments enough for you to live another day....


These days, we have 'discovered' Bush Tucker. Indigenous Australians have been eating bush tucker for 60,000 years but for a long time we steered clear of the mushrooms, fruits, vegetables, animals, birds, reptiles, insects, flowers, herbs and spices that are native to this country.


It didn't look nice. In fact it looked awful. It takes a fair amount of courage to munch on a lizard, and how about a large family sized moth? (You've heard about those grubs of course).


But there's also wonderful fruits, tubers, greens, seeds and nuts. Bush Tucker isn't just witchetty grubs, although Witjuti as they are commonly called by aboriginis are incredibly high in protein and free for the eating....


Bush tucker is becoming widespread, thanks to a spate of recent health studies showing that native Australian meats, especially emu and kangaroo, are lower in fat and higher in iron than other conventional meats. The fruits are also known to be healthier, with the Kakadu plum thought to be the world's highest source of Vitamin C.


Most of what European settlers believed to be inedible is now considered very much the norm on the menus of top restaurants around the country.
