Hawaiian Macadamia - considered the world's richest, most elegant nut.
trees grow best in the fertile volcanic soil in Hawaii. The trees
take years to mature and the harvest is relatively small. The supply
of trees is small, only 35,000 acres are harvested during each nine month
buttery macadamias from Hawaii truly are elegant. Even though this
one pound of macadamia nuts are raw, they still have a rich, creamy texture and milk flavor that
often defies description. Ironically, the outer shells that
originally protected these precious nuts are so hard it takes over 300
lbs. of pressure to crack one.

ADDITIONAL MACADAMIA FACTS:
Macadamias are the creme de la creme among nut connoisseurs and prized by
cooks for the creamy texture and exotic, buttery taste they add to
recipes. But, contrary to conventional wisdom, something that tastes
good can also be good for you.
This tasty, upscale nut contains no
cholesterol and is low in sodium and saturated fats. Over 80 percent
of the fatty acids in macadamias are monounsaturated. That's more
monounsaturates than those found in olive oil! Monounsaturated fat
(often called good fat) has been shown to lower blood cholesterol,
possibly having a cleansing effect on the arteries and reducing the risk
of heart disease.
