Kawkawa Jelly has a sweet apple base peppered with the minty fresh taste of kawakawa leaves. It could be described as a Māori version of a mint jelly. But, with the unique taste of kawakawa, we have found it to be far more versatile, complementing a much wider range of dishes. Kawakawa can best be described as a native Bush Basil. Traditionally used in cuisine and as a rongoa Māori (natural remedy) by our tupuna (ancestors).
Great ways to enjoy the pickle • Ideal on a cheese platter with your favourite creamy blue cheese or sharp tasting hard cheeses • As an accompaniment to cold meats • In a lamb burger • Use as a glaze for pulled pork and sliders • On fried Maori bread (don’t forget to butter) to satisfy any sweet tooth
