Hi all,
I was supposed to post this information after I read an article in the West Australian newspaper, last week.

Titled “Tribal Scent” it is an article about Sandalwood and Aboriginals.

It screens on Wednesday night at 9.30 pm on NITV, channel 34.
The Program Guide is here.

We still remember one of our early trips to the W.A. goldfields and the prospector who took a little time to show us what the Sandalwood looked like. He also showed us what the Quandong, a close relative of the Sandalwood, looks like. That little bit of knowledge sure changed our trips through those areas.

Many thanks Ray for your time.

Cheers,
Wayne & Sally.

Quandong – have you ever tasted them?
Not something to write home about.

I've eaten Quandong nuts picked out from Emu crap.
The emu's digestive process has a roasting effect on the nut and it tastes quite nice.


Looking for adventure.

While we are on the subject, I have often walked past a pile of animal poop with undigested objects in it, and thought "they look tasty...the digestive process possibly roasted those objects." I have never tested the theory though, call me unadventurous if that is a world. Thanks for the info. :-)

Dennis, next time you are passing Copley just north of Leigh Creek, drop in to the bakery and try a quandong pie. Delicious.
Cheers,
Val.

It may still be worthwhile calling into Copley. We were there earlier this year and while the bakery business at the northern end of the town had closed, it seems that the business is now part of the caravan park at the southern end and we enjoyed a good selection of pasties and pies as before. Hope that is still the case.

Nice Al, but I think I will pass on that taste test. :)

Kopi Luwak, is the most expensive coffee available, which is made by collecting coffee beans eaten by wild civets.

Wonder if there is a market for these nuts after the Emus have finished with them..

True, not necessarily "wild" (did a cut and paste) Either way it comes out the animal. Easier to get while in a cage I guess.
