Edible Lilli Pilli Fruits


Since my discovery that Lilli Pilli fruits (also known as Riberries) are indeed edible, I have been harvesting them and making this delicious Aussie bushtucker jam. Lilli Pilli trees (Syzygium luehmannii) are commonly found in subtropical areas of Australia, and they grow in abundance in Brisbane, where you can find them as popular garden hedges and roadside trees. They are packed with anit-oxidants and have a high vitamin c content, so why not harvest those little pink berries and make some jam today?

Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Makes: 1 bowl of jam

Ingredients
1 cup lilli pilli fruits
2 cups water
1 cup sugar

Easy to harvest


Method

Simmer the Lilli Pilli fruits in water for thirty minutes, to soften the fruit and release the pectin, which helps the jam to set. The color of the lilli pillis will change at this point, but the jam will still turn out a lovely pink in the end.

Simmer the fruits


Add the sugar and let it dissolve, stirring occasionally as you bring it to the boil. You can remove the seeds at this stage or leave them in the jam for extra added chew.

Healthy Bushtucker Jam


The Lilli Pilli jam will begin to set after about fifteen minutes of boiling. When the jam has reached setting point, pour it into sterilized jars. Seal and label the jars when they are cooled.

Serve on buttered toast or even scones for afternoon tea, or maybe offer it as an edible gift for family and friends. Enjoy.
