No matter where you live you will love my Aussie Dukkah recipe.
Duqqa, du’ah, do’a, or dukkah is an Egyptian and Middle Eastern condiment consisting of a mixture of herbs, nuts, and spices. It is typically used as a dip with bread or fresh vegetables for an hors d’œuvre.
My Aussie Dukkah recipe has some distinctly Australian flavours such as Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil and Macadamia nuts.
Can you use essential oils in cooking or drinks? Yes but only ones that are labelled for culinary use. Read more about this here.

Lemon Myrtle Salt Recipe
To make the lemon myrtle salt add 4 drops of Young Living lemon myrtle oil to 1/4 cup of salt. I prefer to use fine Himalayan salt. This recipe only uses 1 tsp of the salt mix. You can use the rest as a finishing salt, add to dressings or sprinkle over chicken or fish.
Add all ingredients to the food processor and process until desired consistency Store in a glass jar.
