Herbie's Spices makes the bold claim that it stocks the largest range of culinary herbs and spices in the Southern Hemisphere.

One of the Australian native herbs I particularly like is lemon myrtle (Backhousia citriodora).

Its fragrant lemongrass-like flavour is fabulous in macadamia-based cakes and biscuits, and enhances the flavour of seafood.

Add towards the end of cooking, so it is not cooked for more than 10 to 15 minutes, as any longer will destroy its delicate lemon notes.

Lemon myrtle must be used sparingly, about ½ a teaspoon for 500 g of meat and/or vegetables, otherwise the camphor-like eucalyptus taste will dominate.

The blends and spice mixes made at Herbie's Spices contain no fillers, starches, MSG, free-flow agents or additives of any kind.
