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 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!
