Everywhere we went the shops and markets were filled with delicious nuts, the local lidl had huge barrels of nuts at an unbelievable prices. In discussing this with my fellow travellers we began an exciting discussion of our favourite nut snack which resulted in one very serious question.........
Why does nobody make honey roasted macadamia nuts?
I mean think about it; honey roasted almonds, peanuts and cashews taste amazing when raw almonds, peanuts and cashews taste ok but raw macadamia nuts already taste amazing so what would happen if you add honey roasted crust.......... a taste explosion my friends.
Honey Roasted Macadamia Nuts
400g Macadamia nuts ( or other nut of choice)
2 tbsp Honey
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp Vanilla essence
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp lemon zest
1 tbsp granulated brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 - Preheat your oven to 180'C. Melt together the honey, butter, vanilla essence and cinnamon in the
microwave for 45 seconds to a minute.
2 - Add the nuts and the lemon zest and mix well until everything is evenly covered
3 - Line a baking tray and pour out your nuts evenly
4 - Bake for 5 minutes then mix them around, bake for a further 5 minutes and mix again beforebaking for a final 3-4 minutes. Remove from the oven and move them to a cool plate
immediately to stop the cooking process
5 - When the nuts have cooled slightly pour them into a bowl with the granulated sugar and salt, mix thoroughly and then return to the plate to cool comletely. Then break apart and store in an airtight container. The nuts should keep for a week or two, if they last that long.........enjoy =)
