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.

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!!

Organic Hawaiian Macadamia Nut Oil

Organic Macadamia Nut Oil

Aloha

Im so glad you found us, we are family run and operated organic macadamia nut and Kona Coffee farm. We dont know of any other organic hawaiian macadamia nuts or macadamia nut oil in the U.S,. I thought Id share the benefits of this exclusive oil.

Macadamia Nut Oil Benefits:

One standout characteristic of macadamia nut oil is that it is rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids while noticeably low in saturated fatty acids. This is what makes it heart-healthy. As it turns out, such a fatty acids profile is capable of lowering the LDL cholesterol, otherwise known as the bad cholesterol, in the blood.

Macadamia nut oil has a properly balanced omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids content as well, which is at 1-to-1 ratio. Both are considered essential fatty acids, which simply means they are not manufactured by the body, and consequently have to be supplemented through the diet. Omega-3 acts as an anti-inflammatory, while omega-6 functions more as a pro-inflammatory. It is for this reason a proper balance of these essential fatty acids has to be maintained, otherwise chronic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, and cardiovascular diseases may develop. Including macadamia nut oil on a regular basis in your diet should then help achieve this crucial essential fatty acids balance.

Macadamia nut oil is very rich in phytochemicals like squalene, tocotrienols and tocopherols. These compounds protect against oxidation of this edible oil, making it suitable for unrefrigerated storage for up to two years. What’s best, these very same phytochemicals, when ingested by including macadamia nut oil in your diet, help protect against oxidative stress to again prevent the development of oxidative stress-induced diseases like cancer.

Recipe: Raw Macadamia Nut Cheese

1.Soak nuts for 30 min in H20

2.blend with water to make a slurry

3. pour through cheese cloth and let hang overnight

4. add lemon and salt to taste to mac cheese and make into patties to be enjoyed over the course

of 1-2 weeks.

it seems to get better and better. enjoy! To your health, Kollette

Macadamia Nut Oil’s Practical Uses:

As was mentioned, macadamia nut oil is more popular as a beauty aid. Because it gets easily absorb by the skin without leaving a greasy and heavy feeling,See Pure Mana Hawaii for our Organic luxury skincare line www.puremanahawaii.com

 

 

Roasted Kona Rose Coffee

Bullet Coffee Recipe

Recently I was introduced to bullet coffee, a blended coffee drink made with upgraded coffee i.e Kona Rose Coffee, grass-fed butter, and MCT oil (raw coconut and or macadamia nut oil)

Bullet Coffee Recipe

  • Brew 1 cup (8-12 oz.) of coffee using filtered water, just off the boil, with 2 1/2 heaping tablespoons freshly ground Organic Kona Rose Coffee. (French Press is easiest.)
  • Add in 1-2 tablespoons of Organic Macadamia nut oIl or Raw Organic Coconut Oil to the hot coffee (It’s STRONG – start with 1 tsp. and work up over several days).
  • Add 1-2 tablespoons grass-fed, unsalted butter or ghee
  • Mix it all in a blender for 20-30 seconds until it is frothy like a foamy latte

Try this just once, with at least 2 Tbs of butter, and have nothing else for breakfast. You will experience one of the best mornings of your life, with boundless energy and focus. It’s amazing.

Why MCT OIL?

MCT Oil provides fast energy with no crash

Medium-chain triglyceride (MCT) oil. MCTs have carbon tails that come in various lengths, from C-6 to C-12. The shorter the tail, the faster your body can absorb the MCT and convert it to ketones, little molecules that can fuel your brain instead of glucose quickly, thus speeding up your metabolism and giving you a cognitive boost.

Why Grass- fed butter?

Grass-fed butter is full of high-quality fats and nutrients

Cows evolved to eat grass, not factory farm lot feed. Grass-fed cows are healthier than factory-farmed or grain-fed cows, and the butter they produce reflects their good health.

  • Grass-fed butter is higher than grain-fed butter in omega-3 fatty acids, CLA, beta-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin D, vitamin E, and antioxidants. You can actually see the difference in the butter: grass-fed butter is a sunny yellow color, while grain-fed/factory-farmed butter is almost white. The lack of color is a sign that the butter is coming from sick, nutrient-depleted cows.
  • Grass-fed butter is high in butyrate, a short-chain fatty acid. Studies show that butyrate can both prevent and decrease inflammation in humans. In rodents, studies have shown butyrate to protect against mental illness, improve body composition, increase metabolism, and improve gut health.
  • Butter is nutrient-dense. A single tablespoon of butter contains:
    • 500 IU vitamin A
    • More carotenes than carrots
    • High amounts of vitamin K2, vitamin D, and vitamin E

Grass-fed butter is a superfood.. Kerrygold is an excellent grass-fed butter brand, and it’s stocked in most supermarkets.

-Anyway after being introduced to this breakfast drink, I have been feeling energized and focused just wanted to share,

thank you kollette and Jason Stith
