Kutjea, or Australian desert raisin (Solanum centrale) is a native to the more arid parts of Australia. Like other “bush tomatoes”, it has been used as a food source by Central Australian Aboriginal groups for millennia.

Like many plants of the Solanum genus, desert raisin is a small bush and has a thorny aspect. It is a fast growing shrub that fruits prolifically the year after fire or good rains. It can also grow back after being dormant as root stock after any drought years. The vitamin C-rich fruit are 1-3 cm in diameter and yellow in colour when fully ripe. They dry on the bush and look like raisins. These fruits have a strong pungent smell of tamarillo and caramel that makes them popular for use in sauces and condiments. They can be obtained either whole or ground, with the ground product (sold as “kutjera powder”) easily added to bread mixes, salads, sauces, cheese dishes, chutneys, stews or mixed into butter.

Merne Akatyerre (Arrenrnte language) means Bush Sultana in the Northern Territory. It is a nutrient fruit. Sultana plants are low prickly shrub with soft green leaves and yellow and purple flower. Some Aboriginal people in Alice Spring together with guests often go out to bush with coolamon and digging sticks to collect bush sultana and other bush foods.

Audrey Martin Napanangka is a very experienced and well-known designer. Bush Sultana is a very popular fabric. Audrey, being a collector and gatherer, often goes to the bush with her friends and relatives and sometimes she accompanies tourists. She loves nature and bush foods.

Audrey inherited sweet potato dreaming from her parents. In Aboriginal language Bush Potato is called ?Merne anatye?. Bush Potato is a large plant and there are some cracks around this large plant. They dig for Bush Potato in the cracks around the plant. Then they pull out the big root and cook it in hot earth and eat it. The large potatoes become sweet and soft after cooking and the small bush potatoes are soft.

Between the plants women are sitting with coolamon and digging sticks. Bush Potato plants grew surrounding the waterhole represented by concentric circle.

Aboriginal women will gather Honey Ants from nests found under Mulga Trees by digging half a meter around the entrance of the tre roots where in general the storer ants reside. Found in central Australia around Alice Springs the ants construct nests in red flat sandy soil under a tree or bush and with the entrance camouflaged amongst dead litter. There are many types of these ants and only a careful eye and skilled tracking will enable Aboriginal women to find them in the hallow trees. Honey Ants are unique in using their own bodies as living storage, but they have more functionality than just storing food. Some store liquids, body fat and water from insect prey brought to them by worker ants. Honey ants can later serve as a food source for their fellow ants when food is otherwise scarce.
