This nut is native to Australia – its old-time name was the ‘Queensland bush nut’ – but it is also grown in Hawaii and southern USA. Macadamias are expensive but healthy and delicious – crisp, sweet and butter-flavoured. They are about the size of a hazelnut with a round, shiny shell which is so hard that it resists most efforts to crack it at home. Macadamias are sold shelled and usually roasted and salted. They are excellent served with drinks or as a dessert nut; they can be sliced or chopped for nut breads, cakes, biscuits, ice cream and other desserts, or used in the same way as almonds in butter sauce to serve with fish.

Macadamia oil is good in cooking and salads.
