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.

In the Dreamtime all the earth was sleeping. Nothing moved; nothing grew. One day the rainbow serpent woke up from her slumber and came out of the ground. She travelled long distance and became tired; curled up and went to sleep. Her body was heavy which left marks of her sleeping and her winding tracks. Then she came back to the original starting place. She found a hole at the place and thought that there were some frogs. She asked the frog to come out of the hole. The frogs were slow to come out of the hole. They drank too much water and their bellies were heavy. They eventually came out. Amusingly the Rainbow Serpent tickled their stomachs and the frogs laughed. When the frogs laughed, the water came out of their tummy. This is how the lakes and rivers were filled with water, and grass and trees sprung across the land. One day when the Rainbow Serpent turned around, she saw an emu sitting close to a big tree. The Rainbow Snake liked the Emu and became her friend. Emu told the snake that she was laying eggs. A few days later some small emu chicks started walking around. Rainbow Snake became happy and decided to stay. Rainbow Snake also made laws for the inhabitants of the place allowing everybody to live in peace.
