If you’re a fan of traditional mint jelly, but like to keep things interesting, this is your sauce – with a sweet apple base and the refreshing aromatic notes of Kawakawa. Kawakawa is Aotearoa’s version of a native bush basil, with aromatic, peppery-minty flavour notes and renowned health properties. Also found in our native forests, Horopito leaves have a hot peppery taste that adds warmth and complexity. It’s the base for our own Piripiri spice blend.

Beaut’ with either sweet or savoury dishes, Kawakawa gives this jelly a refreshing herbaceous kick that manages to be both cool and spicy. A knockout teamed with crackers and creamy blue cheese or sharp hard cheese, or an unexpected glaze for a fresh fruit flan.

Give it a try:

  • Slather on lamb burgers, cold cut meats and left over roasts
  • Try it instead of BBQ sauce for the most luscious pulled pork.
  • If you’re a fan of Māori bread it’s a must for the sweet tooth (don’t forget the butter!).
