Healthy Foods: Macadamia Nuts

Macadamia nuts come from the fruit of a large evergreen tree native to eastern Australia. Thousands of years before European settlement, the aborigines of Australia gathered the native nuts from rain forest floors and consumed them as snacks. It wasn’t until the early 1880s that the macadamia nut was first introduced to Hawaii, which today is one of the world’s leading producers of macadamias. The nuts are often drenched in chocolate and sold as confectionery items or used in baked goods, like white chocolate macadamia nut cookies. Their pleasant, mellow flavor also works well in savory dishes. Macadamias are beloved for their delicious buttery taste and immense health benefits.
