Macadamia Nuts

Macadamia nuts are mainly grown in Hawaii and Australia, and due to low crop yields, they’re quite expensive. Macadamias are fattier than other nuts, making them a delicious addition to cookies and pastries, but these nuts are also rich in vitamins and antioxidants. Crushed macadamias make a great addition to apple crisp, toasted nuts add crunch to green salads, and chopped macadamia nuts add buttery flavor to white chocolate cookies. One of our favorite recipes is a pudding cake, which uses roasted bananas, buttery macadamias and a hint of orange zest. Serve it with a honey whipped cream made with Kahlua, lime zest and yogurt for a truly decadent dessert. Get these recipes and more from F&W’s guide to macadamia nuts.
