Roasted Macadamia Nuts

I love roasted Macadamia Nuts, but I love the flavor of roasting my own Macadamia Nuts marinated in their own oils.

Macadamia nuts originated in my home country Australia, and were a popular food with the indigenous Australians, the Oil from the nut was often extracted and used for medicinal purposes and cosmetic purposes like a base for face and body paints.

The nut went by several names by the various indigenous tribes, including “Kindal-Kindal,” “Burrawang” and “Boombera.” The nut also became known by Europeans as “Bauple nut,” Bush nut,” and the “Queensland nut.”

It wasn’t until 1858, that German Botanist, Baron Ferdinand Von Mueller, named the nut after his friend, Dr. John Macadam.

As a natural, whole food, macadamia nuts, contain high amounts vitamins and minerals, including Potassium, Phosphorus, Magnesium and calcium, B1, B2, B5, B6, Vit. E, plus niacin and folate.

And with 80% fat per weight, they are truly a Keto friendly Nut. If you live in Australia, personally I have found that Aldi’s, Raw Macadamia Nuts are the cheapest.
