Best Organic Hawaiian Macadamia Nuts!

Best Organic Hawaiian Macadamia Nuts!

There are many reasons……

*for one most organic macadamia nuts you find in health food stores come from Kenya, who knows when they were actually harvested and what conditions they had to go through to get the U.S.

*As of today we have been the only Organic Hawaiian Macadamia nut processors in the US for the past 12 years that we know of, meaning you know where they come from (Mahina Mele Farm)  on the Big Island of Hawaii.

*We ship immediately after being cracked and dehydrated. Absolutely the freshest Organic nuts available!!!!

*Our mission as a family run Organic farm is to produce the highest quality food possible, nutrient rich, and delicious. To do so we have high standards in the way that we process our nuts and go to great lengths to make sure the nuts that we ship are consistently  the best, buttery and crunchy.

*Talk to us directly, if you have any question about the way we process our nuts just ask, we are available.

*Our nuts are not processed with any other nuts or foods, so no worries about gluten or other nut allergies.

*Organic Macadamia nuts, use weed whackers to cut down the weeds not poison, we use blowers to remove leaves, not poison, we feed our trees with organic fertilizers and compost, not chemicals.

How long to grow a macadamia nut?

IMG_2419How long to grow a macadamia nut?

Macadamia nuts take almost as long to grow as baby  in the womb, about 8 months. From flower to nut, macadamia nuts take their time to develop their buttery, sweet, and crunchy flavor and texture.  We grow our macadamia nuts Certified Organic, which means we fertilize and feed our trees only certified organic ingredients, we weed-whack instead of spraying chemicals for weed control.  We believe the more nutrient rich soil the better the macadamia nuts are for your heath and better the flavor.

Macadamia nuts are grown in a variety of soils and conditions but macadamia nuts love water and good aeration.  Here on the Big Island of Hawaii, with its rich volcanic soils and tropical climate, does just that. The nuts are then picked off the IMG_2422ground by hand about every 6-8 weeks. They have a year round growing season although the quantity of nuts that fall is minimal in the summer.

Now, is harvest time. Our macadamia nuts have had plenty of rainfall this past year and growing conditions have been beautiful. Macadamia nuts are rich in Omega 3’s and 6’s in perfect balance and considered a superfood by some.  Our unique dehydrating process allows the nuts to maintain their vitality and brings out their true flavor.

We hope you try our Certified Organic dehydrated Hawaiian Macadamia Nuts. We are the one of a kind here in the U.S.

Thank you for supporting famers directly.

Macadamia Nut Recipes

Macadamia Nut Recipes
Macadamia Nut Cheese and Milk
Macadamia nuts that are dehydrated can be so versaltile,
Macadamia nuts can return to their original state by soaking them for 20-30 min in cold water.
img_2767
When macadamia nuts are in their original state you can easily make macadamia nut milk and cheese at the same time.
Making Macadamia Nut Cheese
1.Blend 1 cup of soaked macadamia nuts with 1 cup water in blender of food processor until creamy smooth, add water until you have a slurry that can be poured.
2.Pour mixture into cheese cloth and allow the macadamia milk to drain into a bowl for 6 hours or so.
3. take the macadamia cheese in the cheese cloth and mix with salt and lemon to taste, this helps the fermentation process.
4. I make into small patties and sprinkle with herbs and edible flours for a beautiful plated dish, place in refrigerator.
5. Also I individually wrap the patties in wax paper to eat over the course of 1-2 weeks.
Enjoy the yummy Organic Raw vegan macadamia nut cheese!

Making Macadamia Nut Milk

  1. Take the milk drained from the cheese making process and add sweetener of choice (optional: use 2 drops liquid vanilla stevia, a date, a dried fig, or 1 tbsp. maple syrup if needed)
  2. Since macadamia milk has a short shelf life, place in refrigerator and enjoy for the next 2-3 days.

Enjoy yuor Organic Raw Vegan Macadamia Nut milk!

Organic Macadamia Nut & Oil Recipes

Organic Macadamia Nuts & Oil Recipes, a chefs delight! Macadamia nuts & Oil are extremely versatile from nuts to cheese, butter, baking, stir-fry, popcorn, dessert, fish, etc…..

Here’s how we use macadamia nuts and oil here on Mahina Mele Farm..

Macadamia nut tips and hints

• Macadamia nuts can be substituted for other nuts measure for measure in most recipes and vice versa.

• Some recipes call for ground macadamia nuts. Simply put them in a food processor and pulse until desired consistency is achieved.

Macadamia Nut Butter

Blending for awhile  you’ll end up with nut butter-yum.

• If you do over-process, macadamia nut butter is delicious as a spread. No need to add anything to the butter but a hint of salt brings out more flavor we also add chocolate to make a chocolate macadami nut butter great with a spoon.

• Ground macadamia nuts can be used as a filler and flavor enhancer in ground meat, poultry and seafood dishes.We love Macadamia nut crusted fish…

Use ground nuts in pastry dough or sprinkle on the bottom of pie shells for a delightful change of taste.

• Our nuts are dehydrated but you may lightly toast nuts before adding to the recipe will yield a new flavor.

• Always let toasted nuts cool down before grinding or chopping to prevent them from becoming oily or pasty in texture.To toast: Spread nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place in 350-degree F. oven. Toast until golden, about 12 to 15 minutes. When using a toaster oven, cut the time in half. It’s best to toast only what you need at the time as toasted nuts will not store as well as raw nuts.

• Macadamia nuts pair particularly well with coconut, chocolate, and fish.

Macadamia nut Oil is a high heat oil that can be used instead of other oils in baking to add a nutty flavor, it also it amazing with stir-fry and makes the best popcorn ( a family favorite!). We also use it for our salad dressing,

1 tbl sugar

1 tbl salt

3 cloves of garlic pressed

Mix together and let stand for 5-10 min

add 1 part balsamic   2 parts oil and shake or mix

You ll have the tastiest salad dressing!

Macadamia Nut Cheese

Macadamia Nut cheese is easy to make,,,

soak macadamia nuts for 1 hour

Blend macadamia nuts in blender with 1 cup water

put through cheese cloth ( what drips out is macadamia nut milk)

what is in the cloth is cheese, add salt and lemon to desired taste to help preserve the cheese.

make into patties and enjoy a soft delicious cheese great on crackers.
