We at Ancient Purity think its tangy and tart taste makes it the most ideal antioxidant-rich addition to sweet treats!

The Vibrant Red Bush Apple - Alive in Delicious Syrup

Bush Apples belong to the Lilly Pilly family. It is a tiny, under storey tree that grows throughout Northern Australia’s open forests and woodlands and grows to a height of 4 to 20 metres. The fruit can also be found in Papua New Guinea. As wonderous as that country is, we just had to choose Australia for the source, but do go and really do eat these Apples. The trees can be recognised by their dark large leaves, white tiny flowers with numerous stamens, and of their vibrant pink apple-sized fruits, which drop to the ground and are harvested when ripe. The Bush Apples used to make our fruit syrup were wild harvested by Indigenous Australians. These native fruits are like a gloriously vibrant cross between an apple and a pomegranate.

Australia’s indigenous Aboriginal people consume the fruit raw and sometimes wrap them in paper bark for roasting some of the fruits on fire. The tree is used for its medicinal properties as well. In addition, it is used as firewood and also provides nectar sources for bees. Within native Aboriginal culture the bush apples are eaten raw and the cooked fruit’s juice, which contains high amounts of antioxidants, used to relieve sore throats, coughs and improve congestion. In old times the Indigenous Aboriginal people would follow the bush foods, moving from rainforest to the floodplains and from seaside to creeks. When the Bush Apples were flowering, it was a sign for them to move there. They used and still use leaves into a tea for the relief of stomach problems and hot leaves are applied to cuts and wounds to reduce swelling and bleeding. The pulp and juice can be used relieving ear ache. Now you see, the Bush Apple is quite extraordinary fruit! The Bush Apple Syrup we offer here is rare and gives you the opportunity to experience the mouth-watering flavour of the Australian Bush Apple. While drinking it you might even feel a little bit spiritual!

Bush Apples and Cuisine

In recent years (The fruit’s first commercial harvest was in 2017), the Bush Apple has caught the attention of several top chefs. The acidic but sweet complexity of the Bush Apple’s taste lends the fruit to applications in a wide range of dishes. Surrounding their large seeds, the fruits contain just a thin layer of flesh. The Bush Apple’s edible part is fluffy in texture on the inner side while on the outer side exhibiting a crunchier texture. You can try our Native Bush Apple syrup in classic apple desserts such as apple strudel, apple pie, apple crumble, or baked desserts. Be creative and make your own healthy otherworldly jam or fruit chutney or use it in a fruit salad. Adding some of the Apple Bush Syrup to sauces for pork, chicken (poultry) or savoury recipes is another culinary option. 

Combining the syrup with Granny Smith apples will result in a more complex blend of flavours. The sweet naturally sweet syrup is the perfect addition to ice-creams and sorbets.  Ben Shewry, the Melbourne Chef of the popular Attica Restaurant, uses Bush Apple Syrup in his favoured Black Ant Lamington at his Attica restaurant, which is one of Australia’s best! You can read more about it here. Ancient Purity’s Bush Apple also does a perfect job in cordials. You can add some of this Bush Fruit syrup to 1-2 shots of gin or vodka for an extraordinary cocktail. Cheers!
