Macadamia

03 Nov 2009
 

A relatively expensive nut that is native to Australia. They have a crisp, sweet, butter flavour- reminiscent of coconut. Macadamias are sold shelled and are usually roasted and salted.

Use: In Asia it is used in curries and stews; in the United States it is a flavouring for ices and cakes. They are also great when served with drinks or as a dessert nut; which can be sliced or chopped for biscuits, ice cream, nut breads, salads, pestos or used in the same way as almonds in a butter sauce to serve with fish.
