Red Kellys Lemon Myrtle Dressing

Lemon Myrtle is an Australian native flowering plant endemic to subtropical rainforests of central and south-eastern Queensland. It is one of the more popular native foods available, and in this dressing gives a unique a unique flavour. Perfect with chicken, seafood or any salad, it produces a brilliant piquant lemon zesty aroma. The dressing is one of eight in Red Kellys Tasmania's range which were originally developed by the Kelly family in northern Tasmania. Many ingredients like the Tasmanian Pepperberry are native to Tasmania and harvested from wild forests that thrive in our temperate climate.

Cradle Coast Olive Oil

Summerberry Dessert Sauce

Unlike the mainland, there are no shortage of berries in Tasmania, and companies like Gourmet Sauce Company make maximum use of these tasty fruits. They make five berry dessert sauces - blueberry, boysenberry, loganberry, blackberry and raspberry - plus a chocolate dessert sauce for the chocoholics amongs us. The Summerberry Sauce is a personal favourite. Its flavour is closest to Blackberries but with a rich and sharp undertone. This sauce is amongst the best, rich, fruity and 100% Tasmanian. Gourmet Sauce Company's Dessert Sauces are made in Evandale, Tasmania.
