Product Description

(Curcuma australasica) flowers appears before the onset of the Wet Season in Tropical Australia even before its leaves have fully unfurled. A native turmeric plant in the ginger family, The Cape York Lily grows from a tuber which is not only edible, but quite palatable when roasted. The rhizomes can be used in a similar way, to spice food, as traditional turmeric, and the aborigines would roast and eat these.
This can be substituted in any receipt where Ginger or Turmeric is recommended.
