The fruit compote we made to accompany a lemon myrtle creme is a delicious medley of strawberry, blueberry and an underated little native Australian fruit – the emu apple or muntrie.

Muntries (Kunzea pomifera) – also known as emu apples, native cranberries, munthar i, muntaberry or monterry  – are low-growing plants found along the southern coast of Australia. The berries produced by these plants are about 1 cm in diameter, green with a tinge of red at maturity and have a flavour of a spicy apple. Crunchy in texture, muntries contain up to four times more antioxidants than blueberries  and provide natural waxes that are good for skin nourishment.
