Macadamias are an Australian born nut containing the highest amount of good fats in any nut, not to mention the fact that they are delicious.
CEO of Australian Macadamias Jolyon Burnett encourages the use of Australian flavours and ingredients in our entertaining menus this festive season. It helps to support local industry as well as bringing an Australian flavour to our Christmas traditions.
We have been able to get our hands on some fabulous looking Christmas macadamia recipes to share with you and this first one for Christmas Spiced Macadamias looks to be not only delicious but also simple. One I will definitely be trying, if only for myself.
Christmas Spiced Macadamias
1 egg white
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted macadamias
Icing sugar to serve if desired
Preheat oven to 150°C, fan-forced.
Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
Whisk the egg white in a medium sized bowl until it starts to foam.
Combine the sugar, spices and salt and mix well in another bowl.
Add the macadamias to the egg white and coat evenly, remove the macadamias and add to the spice mixture and coat evenly.
Place the coated macadamias onto the prepared tray in one layer and separate them individually.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the coating mixture has hardened.
Allow to cool to room temperature on the tray.
To serve, sprinkle with icing sugar.
