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!

Your morning cup of coffee is a ritual.

Your morning cup of coffee is a ritual, it’s what gets you out of bed in the morning and what you look forward to the night before .The ritual is the way you prepare your coffee, its strength and intensity,  its unique to your taste and individual requests. Our rituals are what nurtures us, its the way we take care of ourselves.

I awake and watch this morning as my husband hand grinds the coffee, after he as measured it with his wooden coffee spoon, then allows it to steep in our french press. Finally as his gift  he hands me my first cup of Kona Rose Coffee. Its a deep and spiritual pleasure, that first sip, the way I hold it in my hand and breathe in deeply. I wonder if its the coffee I’m drinking and the way we have nurtured each coffee tree, picked each ripe berry and fermented it. Raked the coffee for hours and days until it was dried and then roasted to perfection. I’m sure its all these things that make this morning cup of coffee a gorgeous ritual but its this quality that no matter if you have had direct contact with each plant it shares itself with anyone who drinks it.

Its the quality of the coffee….. there’s no denying, no deceiving of the senses, no greater way to explain, its the truth and integrity that makes this ritual.

Enjoy our Certified Organic Kona Rose Coffee, Kollette and Jason Stith

8.5 fl oz bottle of organic macadamia nut oil

Organic Macadamia Nut Oil is Super

Organic Macadamia Nut Oil is Super. This high heat oil is nutty an delicious and Super versaltile, lending itself ti stir-frys, salad dressings, baking, Organic Macadamia Nut oil is rare to find here in the U.S., we pick, process, and press ourselves bottle in green glass to maintain its vitality. We do not process any other nuts in our facility. We are farm direct and have the purest gourmet organic Macadamia Nut oil available.

Benefits: However, between 78 to 86 percent of the fat in Macadamia nuts is monounsaturated (the good for you, heart-healthy kind of fat). Monounsaturated fat helps lower cholesterol and decreases your risk of heart disease and stroke.
In addition, macadamia nuts are one of the only food sources that contain palmitoleic acid (a type of monounsaturated fatty acid that may speed up fat metabolism, thus reducing the body’s ability to store fat).

Because of its high content of monounsaturated fat, macadamia nut oil is fast becoming a favorite among top chefs around the world. Not only is it healthier than olive oil and canola oil, but many people also believe that it has a better taste. In addition, macadamia nut oil has a higher smoke point than olive oil, which means that it can be cooked at higher temperatures without breaking down and losing its flavor.

Its the only oil we use and for a Super good reasons. Thank You Kollett and Jason Stith

A Superfood-Organic Macadamia Nut

.A  Super Food-Organic Macadamia Nut

“What can compare to the sweet, buttery mac nut’s tender embrace? As far as nuts, seeds, and pseudo-nuts go, its fatty acid profile is unparalleled. Throw a handful into a bowl of Greek yogurt, along with blueberries, blackberries, and strawberries (or any berry, really), and you’ve got yourself a rich, masterful dessert with minimal linoleic acid. And it’s got good amounts of magnesium, manganese, thiamine, copper, and iron. Not to mention some fiber too. Pack a baggy full and you’ve got yourself the perfect trail food for day long hikes.

I tend to get a little carried away when it comes to those little mouth bombs of satiety, so I apologize. Today’s post concerns the mac nut’s lifeblood: macadamia oil. I know what I’ve said about seed oils in the past, but this is different. I liken the concept of macadamia nut oil to that of olive oil; they are inherently, obviously, blatantly fatty foods, and extracting said fat isn’t a stretch, nor does it require industrial solvents and complex processes (they may do so to increase production and efficiency, but you can crush a mac nut and leave an oily residue; you can’t do the same for a kernel of corn to produce corn oil). In fact, the layman extracts his own virgin, first-press macadamia nut oil every time he bites into one. You can feel the macadamia oil droplets oozing out of the obliterated nut mass and into your mouth. Being the most energy (specifically, fat-derived energy) dense nut of all, it’s totally saturated with the stuff.

Macadamia oil imparts a mild, buttery, rather macadamia-y flavor to foods, but it’s mild enough to use for homemade mayonnaise. It is highly shelf-stable and resistant to heat-induced oxidation; in one test, it bested rice bran oil, walnut oil, sesame oil, almond oil, avocado oil, grapeseed oil, and hazelnut oil in an oxidative potential test. Of all the seed and nut oils, macadamia oil withstood temperatures up to 120 degrees C (about 250 degrees F) without significant oxidation. It also excelled at the shelf stability test, being the only oil tested that exceeded the manufacturer’s given “best-before” date. I rarely expect companies to be totally accurate, but to be completely wrong in the opposite direction is a nice surprise! Keep your macadamia oil in a dark bottle and in the fridge, or a cool dark place, and I bet it’ll stay fresh even longer. I’m still wary of doing any heavy duty sauteeing or high heat grilling using macadamia oil as the primary fat, but it looks to be pretty stable as far as oils go with a smoke point of anywhere between 210 and 234 degrees C (410-453 degrees F), depending on who you ask.Read more: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/macadamia-oil/#ixzz48UKPwlRY” I love this article!!
