Macadamia Nuts

Mac Nut Operation and Helper

Hawaii and Australia are the two top Macadamia nut producers in the world. Here in Puna Mac nuts are a huge food source. With no enzyme inhibitors, the Mac nut can be eaten raw and easily digested. We procure fresh in shell Mac nuts from a farm down the street or friends with Mac nut trees on their property. The outer shell is easily removed within 24 hours or when dry a tap of a hammer removes them. We leave them in the shell until we need to harvest, then we crack them open one at a time and put them in a jar to use and eat. Macadamia nut Pesto is an Island favorite and we eat this pesto often, it goes with anything.

Evolution of The Mac Nut

We recently planted three young Mac nut trees along the side of our house. These trees won’t produce for several years but we are ready and waiting. Bon appetit!

    Tony: Many years ago someone gave me a bag of mac nuts and I had a vey difficult time cracking them open. A hammer did not work, so I used my bench vice to get them open. It was a chore, but they were very tasty. I enjoy reading your blogs, so please keep them coming. Dad 12-14-2010.
