Boabs in the Kimberley’s Taste Sensations

Gourmet Preserves – with crunchy pieces of Baby Boab

Once peeled, a Baby Boab tuber is crisp and white with a texture similar to water chestnuts and a sweet delicate flavour. Baby Boab is best served raw or lightly cooked, and maintains its crunchy texture when incorporated into preserves. The preserves are all hand made and have no additives. Boabs In The Kimberley grow and source produce from the Ord River Area whenever possible. It is a home based business on the outskirts of Kununurra. 

Our Range of Gourmet Preserves

The sweet taste is excellent for use in fruit preserves, and compliments the intense flavour of mango, and tartness of wild rosella.  Coarsely-chopped pieces of Baby Boab provide a crunchy texture to our savoury chutneys and relishes.

Boab Confectionary – with the tangy white fruit from the Boab nut

Break open the hard case of a boab nut, and you will find the creamy-white fruit in which the seeds are nestled.  This dry powdery fruit pulp, with its tangy citrus flavour, has six times more vitamin C than oranges, and twice as much calcium as milk.   It is also rich in other vitamins (A, B1, B2, B6, and PP), minerals (phosphorus, iron, sodium, zinc, magnesium and potassium), dietary fibre (soluble and insoluble) and amino acids*.

A selection of Boab Fruit Temptations

The Boab Fruit Pulp has long been used by Australian Aborigines as a source of food and use in bush medicines.   Indulge yourself with this tasty delicacy unique to the Kimberley Region.
