Comments Warnings :&nbs;pAcacia frimbriata is one of the wattles used for its seeds in bush tucker. Historically the Aboriginals used wattle seed to make a type of flour. The seeds were first roasted in ovens made in a hole in the ground using hot coals and hot rocks. Today the wattle seeds are prepared by lightly baking them in an oven and then grinding them to a flower. These flours are made into breads, biscuits and added to ice cream.
