Glazed Quandong

Ingredients
100gm Dried Quandong
Sugar

Make sugar syrup of equal water and sugar.
Heat to 70C, in stainless steel saucepan .
Pour warm syrup over dried fruit, enough to cover it.
24 hours later add 20gm sugar and bring fruit in syrup to 70C
Turn off heat.
Repeat this process for 5 more days ,which brings you to 7 days in total processing.
On the 8th day warm the fruit mixture and pour off syrup (bottle off and use for toppings etc)  catch fruit in strainer ,allow to drain, dry in oven on low temperature.


Quandong Chilli Sauce

15 Quandongs (dried or fresh) rough chop
1/4 cup vinegar (don't use sweet spiced type)
2 small chillies - chopped and de- seeded
1 tsp salt
1 tbspn brown sugar or palm sugar

If using dried quandong soak in a little warm water for half an hour, then drain.
Simmer slowly quandong and chillies in the vinegar with salt and sugar added, until mixture has become reduced and quandongs soft and mushy, about 30 mins.
Sauce should coat the back of a spoon and not just run straight off.



Quandong Flour:

Crack the quandong seeds open (you'll need an Aussie B.O.N.K. or something with a similar nut cracking action as they're tough).

Inside, remove the outer shell to uncover a dark brown rough coat which also needs to be removed so you can get at the oil rich kernel which you then roast  to create yummy quandong flour.

Roasting is as important in the process as is roasting coffee beans ready for use.


Quandong Paste

Ingredients
100gm dried quandong
400gm sugar
juice of one lime

Cover the quandong with water and soak for a minimum of one hour.
Cook until tender (about 30 minutes).  Strain
Puree the fruit and place in a pot with sugar and lime juice.
Cook for approx half an hour until all the sugar has dissolved and the mixture has thickened.
Then pour into moulds and allow to cool before covering.
