Be careful that these nuts are toxic for cats and dogs so if you have pets at home make sure to not put these in to their reach.
The one that I found at the local supermarket has no shell. it comes from south africa. I was originally hunting for almonds but I found this instead hahahha. I got intrigued because I never tasted macadamia nuts before believe it or not. I only hear this more as an ingredient to most beauty products. So I thought I wanted to taste the nuts.
I don’t know much about this dry fruit so I am quite surprised I didn’t know what to expect. It might not be the same as the other nuts.
I also know that this is paired with meat for second dishes or for preparing sweets, ice cream , cakes and torroni (the famous italian sweet) and these are usually paired with honey and chocolate, too.

I have to be honest with you guys, and I know that not all of the items that I share is what I expected and had in mind. Macadamia I should say is my least favorite out of all the dry fruits because it has that little bitter taste at the end which isn’t pleasing to my taste buds. I just love the other dry fruits and again this is not what I expected. I have always thought it would just be the same as the others. I am obviously not very familiar about this so please forgive me. If you do like it let me know. Is this your favorite? I would love to hear your thoughts!
It is December you guys… the holidays are coming! It is winter time! Stay healthy!
