Australian Desert Raisin


Other name: Akudjura, Wild Tomato, Bush Tomato, Kutjera powder.

Australian desert raisin (Akudjura ) known to Australians as bush tomatoes, the dried fruits of several members of the Solanum species grow wild in the desserts of western and central Australia. They have a flavor that some have likened to sun-dried tomatoes with undertones of chocolate and caramel.

The Australian desert raisin fruits (Akudjura ) are rich in vitamin C and have a strong, pungent taste of tamarillo and caramel that makes them well-liked for use in sauces and condiments. The Australian Desert Raisin is closely related to the typical garden tomato (both belong to the Solanaceae family,) and can be found either whole or as a pre-ground powder. The ground product, (sold as "Kutjera powder") is easily added to bread mixes, scones, biscuits, salads, sauces, cheese dishes, chutneys, and stews or mixed into butter. The Australian Desert Raisin flavor matures on standing or with extended cooking and can be used in addition too, or to replace traditional tomato in tomato-based pasta sauces and pizzas. Becuase Australian Desert Raisin absorbs liquid and expands during cooking, it acts as a good thickening agent.
