You’ll notice a few strawberry products up on our store, this is due to a farming crisis experienced in mid September. Farmers were resorting to killing off fields of plants laden with fruits after demand radically dropped by over 50% due to Australia’s lockdown. The average cost of production for farmers is about $1.30 for a 250g punnet of strawberries, yet due to the lack of cafes and restaurants open, a supply and demand issue arose, forcing supermarkets to sell the produce for as little as $1 a punnet. This is why farmers were resorting to killing off plants, they couldn’t afford pickers and packers, let alone transport of the strawberries. An SOS was sent out to Australians - “please buy as many strawberries as possible”. So despite the strawberries not being organic or grown on our land, we couldn’t resist getting involved and came up with a few recipes to expand your tastebuds and help the Aussie farmers! We hope the cause resonates with you too.

The distinct strawberry flavour isn’t overpowered in this one, it’s perfectly lifted and balanced to create a sweet yet savoury bbq sauce, ensuring to steer clear of an overly sickly sweet base like some store bought bbq sauces. Red habaneros give a kick while the herbs and spices work their magic to create complexity. Enjoy as you would any bbq sauce, spread over a steak sub, a burger, potatoes, a unique base for a pizza, or a marinade for your roast chicken or duck.
