It is a simple process to roast macadamia nuts. I have a macadamia nut tree in my yard and I have learned that the raw nuts are not as tasty and flavorful as the roasted nuts. If you buy a large quantity of macadamia nuts, store them in a cool dry place (preferably in a thick plastic bag) until you are ready to use them. If you have shelled raw nuts, you can store them in an air tight container in your refrigerator. If you prefer roasted macadamia nuts, just follow these simple directions for roasting your macadamia nuts.
Preheat you oven to 225 - 250 degrees F. Place the shelled macadamia nuts in a pie pan, cookie sheet or other shallow baking pan being careful not to stack the nuts more than two deep. If ;you are not using the nuts for baking, you may want to spray them with a salt water solution to give them a great salty taste. Avoid roasting smaller nut pieces with larger whole nuts because the smaller pieces may scorch. Roast the nuts for 10 - 15 minutes until they turn a nice golden yellow color. You may roast them for less time or more time depending on how you like them. Be sure to stir the nuts every few minutes during the roasting process to make sure they roast evenly and don’t scorch. Upon removal from the oven, remove them from the baking tray and cool immediately to keep them from further roasting in their own heat. The nuts taste great with onion or garlic salt, or butter or just plain. Any way you prepare them, Macadamia nuts taste great . Macadamia nut pie and chocolate covered macadamias are awesome.
