Plant of the day: Lemon Myrtle (Backhousia Citriodora)

Lemon Myrtle is sometimes referred to as the “Queen of the Lemon Herbs”. It boasts an intensely citrus fragrance and flavour and has long been used in Aboriginal cuisine and medicine. In the wild, you’ll find it in the subtropical rainforests of central and south-eastern Queensland.

Undoubtedly the most popular of Australia’s native herbs, Lemon Myrtle’s fresh tangy leaves may be used in teas, syrups, glazes, cakes, biscuits, dressings, sauces, and ice creams, dips and meat dishes. The essential oil distilled from the leaves has a refreshing lemony scent and has been found to have antifungal and antibacterial properties.
