In Central Australia, wild fig grows naturally over a large area. Fig is edible while raw and has a slight sweet taste. Dried figs are ground into paste to eat. Aboriginal people arrived in Australia continent at least 50,000 years ago. Over the period they found ways of surviving that reveal an extensive and detailed knowledge of the environment. Their understanding of native plants goes far beyond just knowing what is edible. For Survival and hunting they invented weapons and tools. Many of these things were unknown until recently. Even towards the end of last century it was hard to find a bush tucker restaurant in Australia. Now here are number of restaurants of bush tucker. You can get many books on bush tuckers. Skillfully, Natasha provided in her artwork what to use with wild fig for some good dishes.
