Native Currants (Acrotriche depressa) are indigenous to Southern South Australia and Kangaroo Island and are a low growing heath found in well drained sheltered areas.
The little berries were a favourite food of the Aboriginal people of the area.
A strong tangy/acidic flavour.
The burgundy coloured native berry is very useful as a base for savoury and sweet sauces and desserts.
The juice of the berry can be extracted using a food processor (on low) and then pouring through a sieve to separate from the seed.
