We take an interest in all stages of production from seed-to-fork with a focus on Exotic Produce, Native Superfood and what we call 'The Big Four' - Premium Coffee (A-Arabica | R1-Robusta), Cocoa, Bourbon Vanilla Bean and Honey.
Jagin is an edible perennial herb that is an integral part of Kunganji Gastronomy. Known as Alpinia caerulea, it is a Native Ginger plant found in tropical rainforest areas.
The Kunganji view the whole plant as edible, from the lemon-ginger tasting berries that can be eaten straight from the tree, to the young tips of the underground stems that are a concentrate of ginger.
The broad sword shaped green leaves can be dried and used as a tea but are often used to wrap vegetables, seafood and meat parcels infusing the aroma of natural ginger during the cooking process.
