Walnut macadamia, its homeland is Australia, and it can rightly be considered one of the most expensive nuts in the world. Its appearance is slightly similar to a large hazelnut, and the core diameter is about 1.5-2 centimeters.
One of the reasons for the high cost is that the tree begins to bear fruit only at the age of 8-10.
The macadamia shell is so strong that the nuts are already sold cleaned or complete with a special key and special inscriptions on the shell. But nevertheless, the inside of the nut is very soft and crumbles easily, so it is quite difficult to clean the core of the shell without damage.
100 grams of this nut have a calorie content of over 700 kcal, and also macadamia contains a huge amount of various useful substances. It tastes more like caramel than a normal nut, so in Australia it is often used in various expensive desserts.
