You adore anything (usually cookies) with macadamia nuts inside but you've never considered nibbling on the inordinately delicious nuts by themselves. Sound familiar? These salty hand-to-mouth snacks just might change your outlook.
It's easy to see how their popularity in sweet treats has relegated macadamias to the non-snacking stratosphere, but they make a world-class alternative to other types of nuts. After all, they're equally rich in protein, fiber, and heart-healthy fats. Of course, macadamias can also be used to glam up your meals. Think macadamia-crusted mahi mahi or a mango tart with macadamia crust and you start to see the possibilities for tropical triumphs.
As for shelling out more on macadamias, they're worth their weight in rich, buttery flavor and inscrutably soft texture. They are also a rare delicacy that takes much more time to grow and extra effort to harvest, with the hardest shell of all the nuts to crack-much too tough for even the strongest household nutcracker. These come from South Africa, now home to the single largest plantation-and where macadamias have been a boon to the local economy. We roast and salt them ourselves for the freshest, most satisfying flavor.
