A Tough Nut to Crack

When I brought home macadamias in the shell from the food swap yesterday I didn't realise how hard they would be to crack.  I usually eat them covered in chocolate or roasted and salted.  I don't think I've ever eaten them straight from the shell.

Fortunately, we have sons who were very happy to whack the macadamias with a hammer - they're happy to hit anything with a hammer.

Afterwards, the nuts were guzzled down with great haste, especially by my husband whose favourite nuts they are.  And I am on the look out for a grafted macadamia tree, now I know that they will grow in Adelaide.  I have no idea where I would put a macadamia tree, but I'm sure somewhere can be found!
