Yes, I like macadamias and had a tree before I moved back to the City some 5 years ago, and still have macadamias from that tree.
They are prolific and need no looking after and are so expensive to buy, probably because you need a special machine to crack them?
I still have heaps left and they do not seem to age! However I don't think they are something I will buy when this lot are gone and I keep forgetting I even have them.
They are one of my favourites therefore I don't buy them regularly or I would not stop eating them. I really like wasabi macadamias but you don't see them all the time. Coles had some a few years back that looked like they were covered in dirt and not nice clean wasabi. I buy them if I want them and I don't look at the price - I usually trade them off for something else. I love the raw ones best. It's always handy to have a vice for cracking them as they are slippery little suckers.
I love these nuts. They are exensive, over $8.00 for a small bag of salted ones from Woolworths. I used to buy them occasionally as a treat for myself but haven't had any for ages. It's a pity you rarely find them on sale though.
I sure do. I like all sorts of nuts (the eating kind) and have a small hand full of mixed nuts each day. There are never enough macadamia nuts in the mixed bag I buy and the rule is that you are not allowed to choose the nuts or all the macadamia and cashews would be eaten first.
As a child i grew up on a farm that had a few macadamia trees and as an adult a had a job picking up macadamias. After a lifetime of free nuts just picked up and esten fresh whenever i wanted them for free makes it almost impossible to justify paying any money for them. They don't taste the same either. To me bought ones have been out of their shell to long and they are stale and bland. Fresh is best every time
