Australia Day Tucker

Araucaria bidwillii
Family: ARAUCARIACEAE
What could be more Australian than Bunya nuts on Australia Day?

They’re for sale at many roadside stalls north of Toowoomba and down at Ravensbourne, at the moment. The going price seems to be about $5.00 each. We bought these three at Cabarlah this morning for $10.00.
For ideas on how to cook them, and more about these iconic Australian trees, search this site (white search panel at top left). Don’t forget to read the comments, as readers have sent in some good ideas.
And if you have a good recipe of your own, we’d love to hear about it.
P.S. Don’t forget to save a seed or three for planting, if you have the room. They’re very easy to grow. Produce your own hassle-free organic health food.
