Manaaki’s Kawakawa Jelly


Your surprise this month is a jar of this sweet, delicious jelly made by a group of Aunties from Omaka Marae.

Manaaki is a social enterprise that has been developed to help Omaka Marae remain self sustaining, and therefore self determining.


Kawakawa is a native plant with aromatic, pepper and mint flavour notes. Traditionally used in cuisine and as a rongoa Māori (natural remedy) by our tupuna (ancestors). This jelly has a sweet apple base with refreshing aromatic notes from the kawakawa.
