Harakeke

Our native flax (Harakeke) grows throughout NZ and is often seen in wet locations. The product historically was used for weaving, rope and basket making.

Harakeke - Flax Seeds

The seeds can be tempered (roasted) gently until they pop to create a gently nutty coffee flavour.

The black seeds are taken from the dried flax pods in the summer and packaged in 50gm containers.

Toast flax seeds in pan until they pop then grind to use as a garnish or for use in polenta or rice.
Toasted flax seed can also be mixed with salt to make a flax seed salt
