I adore the taste of macadamias and they are especially scrummy when they are roasted with honey. This is another super simple recipe that is easy to make and much healthier and cheaper than the nuts in the shops.
I made batches of these late last year for Christmas presents for my daughters' teachers and our family and friends. Popped into a cute little jar, they make a gorgeous, handmade present.
Roasted Honey Macadamias
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp olive oil
400g raw macadamias
Pinch Himalayan crystal salt
Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F).
Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Spread the nuts in an even layer across the tray.
Roast nuts for 10 - 15 minutes or until a heavenly aroma fills your kitchen. Shake the pan from time to time to stop the nuts burning.
While the nuts are roasting, mix the honey, oil and salt in a large bowl.
Once the nuts are golden, remove from the oven and add to the bowl.
With a spoon, toss the nuts to coat with the honey mixture.
Put the nuts back on the tray in a single layer and cook for another 10 - 15 minutes or until golden. Again, stir them around a bit to stop them burning.
Take them out of the oven and let cool completely before popping them into jars.
They keep for a long time in an airtight container. That is if you can stop yourself from scoffing them all at once. I know that I can't!
