Our condiments and preserves are amazingly versatile.  Delicious as an everyday meal companion and as a quick and easy entertainment addition to wow your guests.

We’ve blended native ingredients with local produce to create a contemporary Māori inspired taste.

Our products are handmade with no added artificial ingredients or colours.  Just like auntie used to make.  Being allergen conscious, our range is also gluten free.

Edible native herbs, kawakawa and horopito, tradionally used in Māori cooking and medicine, enhance the Manaaki experience.

 

KAMOKAMO PICKLE

 

OCCASIONS

A great addition to antipasto platters and cheeseboards.

And yummy in your roast beef sammies, with your breakfast bacon and eggs, or as a side for a curry. It goes with anything and everything! Definitely not one to sit at the back of the fridge.

Kamokamo Pickle

TASTE

Kamkamo Pickle is a tasty sweet and sour combo, with a hint of turmeric and mustard to top it off.

INGREDIENTS

Kamokamo is a uniquely New Zealand heritage vegetable. As a tāonga crop, Māori have long been its custodians. Closely related to marrows, courgettes and gourds, it has a mild, nutty flavour and is rich in potassium, zinc and dietary fibre.

 

KAWAKAWA JELLY

 

OCCASIONS

This is a knockout winner teamed with crackers and your favourite creamy blue cheese or other sharp tasting hard cheeses. A perfect addition to lamb burgers and cold cut meats. Or try as a glaze on pulled pork for sliders. If youre a fan of Māori bread its a must for the sweet tooth (dont forget the butter!).

Kawakawa Jelly

TASTE

Kawkawa Jelly has a sweet apple base with refreshing aromatic notes from the kawakawa.

It could be described as a Māori version of mint jelly. But, with the unique taste of kawakawa, we have found that it complements a much wider range of dishes.

INGREDIENTS

Kawakawa can best be described as a native Bush Basil with aromatic, peppery-minty flavour notes. Traditionally used in cuisine and as a rongoa Māori (natural remedy) by our tupuna (ancestors).

 

HOROPITO & LEMON

 

OCCASIONS

This is a fresh tasting, lively sauce that can be used as an alternative to hollandaise. Its a perfect companion for kai moana (seafood). Or drizzled over summer salads, new potatoes and fresh in-season asparagus.

Horopito and Lemon sauce

TASTE

Our Horopito & Lemon sauce is Manaakis gluten free alternative to mayo and hollandaise. A smooth, silky texture with zesty citrus flavours and a peppery bite (from the horopito).

INGREDIENTS

Horopito, also known as Bush Pepper, is unique to New Zealand. It has both aromatic and peppery flavours and, like kawakawa, has a history of use in Māori cuisine and medicine.
