Macadamia nuts are grown predominantly in Hawaii, where the warm climate makes it the ideal locale for these tropical nuts. The macadamia originated in Australia, but now the Hawaiian islands are the primary producers of high-quality, delicious macadamia nuts. Unlike other nuts, macadamia nuts are only sold shelled, since they’re the hardest nuts to crack - it takes 300 lbs of pressure per square inch to crack a macadamia! The effort is worth the meaty, sweet nut that lies inside.
Because macadamias are grown in tropical locales, they’re a nut associated with exotic, tropical island themed dishes and recipes. White chocolate macadamia nut cookies are one delicious option, but you can also dip them in chocolate for chocolate macadamia nuts - an incredibly addictive treat! At Gourmet wholesaler we sell our macadamia nuts raw, so you can use them however you like - including roasting them, which brings out that buttery flavor. We also love macadamia nuts paired with fish, like a macadamia crusted mahi mahi that will transport you to an island vacation in one bite! You can also try macadamia crusted snapper or tilapia. Endless possibilities in one delicious nut!
