  1. I’ve never heard of lillypillies. What a fun name! I love berries; I’m saving up for some berry bushes for my own suburban spot.

    The chicken breast sounds good.

    I’ll have to come back later to visit. You’re now on my quickly growing list of Green Blogs!

    • @Alison: Green is a growing niche! (sorry, couldn’t resist the pun) Lillypillies are medium-sized trees, growing to 10 metres tall or more. I don’t have room for one in my yard, but it’s nice having them in local parks etc that I can harvest. There’s no competition for the berries, either, since hardly anybody here eats them.

      @Meredith: Yes, bacon is the wonder ingredient 🙂

      @Lori: The recipes will be coming later this week (hopefully!). They’re quite different to raspberries – a bit tart, a bit apple-like, with a hint of clove. Probably the closest comparable berries would be cranberries or redcurrants.

  2. I wish I had this info when we lived in sth Sydney – huge lillypilly tree in the garden! All I knew of back then was lillypilly jam, and as a young newlywed wasn’t into preserving. 😀 The LPs on Horseback prove my theory that Bacon Makes Everything Better.

  3. I have never heard of lillypillies either, but I have to say, your photographs make them look mouthwatering! I would like to see your recipes, although I may have to substitute with the raspberries that are native to my yard!

  4. Darren, I have never heard of them either, but you surely make them look good. It is also nice that you can get the berries for free at the park! Bob

    • @Bob: I’m going to be spending a bit of time at your site, I think! I’ve been experimenting with brewing my own ginger beer, and I need all the home fermentation tips I can get! I also have some grape vines planted, so the pruning and vine care tips will be great.

  5. WoW, Darren. It looks like a Lillypillies fiesta here and all those cuisine seem so yummy and irresistible to me! Lol

    OMG, I must leave as soon as possible, as I’m starting to mouth-watering right now…

  6. Thanks for the tip. I have never thought of using them in food. Seems kidn of silly, when I think of it! Let me tweet this one for all Aussies.
