Macadamia Nuts & Macadamia Butter - Raw or Dry Roasted
We have taken this extremely popular nut and made it into an equally wonderful Macadamia nut butter. It has a "sweet" "buttery" taste and texture. We add nothing to it. It is just raw freshly ground macadamias.It can be described as very smooth and having a mellow flavor. It doesn't have any bite or strong flavor

Thought to have originated in Australia, macadamia nuts were made popular in the late 1800s by Ferdinand van Mueller, a European who named the nut after Australian naturalist John Macadam. Also called Queensland nuts, macadamias have been eaten since ancient times by aborigines and have only been in widespread use since the early twentieth century. There are approximately six varieties of macadamia trees that grow in hot humid climates. The round beige nut has a thick hard shell, although some varieties have been developed in recent years with a softer shell. Australia and Hawaii are the leading producers of macadamia nuts. We get most of ours from Africa.

USES
Macadamia nuts are sweet, with a oilier texture similar to Brazil Nuts. They are also crunchy and make a good addition to salads, stews, rice dishes, and desserts. Macadamia nuts are often, covered with chocolate, and sold as a rich confection.

Macadamia Nut Butter is another great alternative to peanut butter and a good addition to ice cream.

Macadamia Nut Butter is easily spreadable for sandwiches, snacks/appetizers and is an excellent addition to recipes. It is also a wonderful compliment to jams, chocolate and crackers.
