The traditional bread of the Indigenous Australian Aboriginal people, Bush Damper has survived generations as a staple diet for the nomadic lifestyle. Easy to make, cook and transport, damper was originally made with flour from the Lomandra Longifolia plant and cooked over an open fire. It is a dense filling bread that can be combined with both sweet and savoury meals.
