Quandongs were much valued for their medicinal properties.Think of quandongs in recipes where you would use stonefruit, or tamarillos. A beautiful colour, they look like a tamarillo, and they are fleshy and chewy and tart. They work really well with duck, and would be great in curries and perfect with slow-roasted lamb shoulder. And of course they make a wonderful tart and / or jam
Specialised uses included a form of tea which was drunk as a purgative.
Quandong tree roots were also ground down and used as an infusion for the treatment of rheumatism.
Quandong leaves and Quandong Kernels were crushed and mixed with saliva to produce a topical ointment for skin sores and boils.
Quandong Kernels were also eaten and sometimes crushed and used as a form of “hair conditioning oil”.
