Description: The finest macadamia orchards in the world climb the majestic slopes of Mauna Loa on the Big Island of Hawaii. A divine conspiracy of rich volcanic soil, abundant rainfall, and equatorial sunshine create ideal growing conditions for the world's premium nut. Mention macadamias and visions of chocolate-glazed clusters of crunchy, buttery heaven come to mind.
It may be hard to believe that something that tastes so rich can actually be good for your health -- but it is true. The oil in macadamias has a higher level of the all-important omega-3 fatty acid than any other vegetable oil.
This exotic tropical treasure has been recognized as a versatile ingredient in both sweets and savories. Macadamias have been eagerly embraced by chefs around the world for their unique creamy flavor and smooth texture. This elegant keepsake will be treasured by anyone who has ever traveled to the Islands or only dreamed of doing so.
