Recipe - Roasting and Salting at home
Jump to main Recipes page.
Roasting and salting raw kernels at home is easy.
If you are using home grown macadamias make sure you use dry kernels as explained here. Nuts from the supermarket should be already dried.
Spread nuts one layer thick on an oven tray. Bake (preferably in a fan forced oven) at 125C to 150C and watch carefully because they are very easy to burn. Remove them as soon as they start to colour (about 15 to 30 mins).
To salt the roasted kernel place 500g in a bowl. Add a teaspoon of macadamia oil or canola oil and stir gently until there is an even coating. Then add a level teaspoon of salt and stir gently until evenly coated.
