Wattleseed

Roasted ground wattleseed has a beautiful nutty, mild coffee flavour and aroma that allows for a diverse use in the kitchen.

It lends itself well to both sweet and savoury dishes as described below.

  • Delicious when used to flavour chocolate, cheesecakes, icecream or other desserts.
  • Try using it in a satay sauce!
  • A great savoury spice to use in casseroles, sprinkled over roast meat or vegetables
  • It can be mixed with regular coffee or chai for a flavour boost.
  • Aboriginals used wattle seed to make a type of flour.
  • And on that note, it is perfect for baking. We often throw in a teaspoon of wattleseed and mountain pepper leaf or kunzea¬†every time we bake a loaf of bread.
  • Our Award winning Slatherin Sauce heavily features wattle seed as a key ingredient.
