Hamster: I wished I could find a way to magically have people send me Morish Macadamias without giving them my land address.
Mokie: *LOL* Same here with sex toys, but Amazon doesn't sell those.
Hamster: *is, after all a hamster* And Mokie is, after all, a Mokie. :P
Mokie: *nodnod*
Hamster: *can't eat sex toys, and most come in unappealing flavours*
Hamster: *and none of them are REALLY nuts*
Mokie: *foreheadslap*
Hamster: *snickers*

Seriously man, tea sites and sex toy sites NEED to embrace the idea of wishlists.

Tea sites... haven't embraced the idea of wishlists yet? *feels the weight of a thousand goths*

Nope! Not any that I've seen. Sure, I can get tea from Amazon, but it's not the saaaaaame...

I just found your comment on my LJ and I had been thinking about friending you anyway so now I am going to do it.
You seem to like to discuss things and you post very yummy looking recipes too :)
I prefer my macadamias fresh out of the shell btw.

Wow. Thank you! I was thinking of friending you too, so this is a nice coincidence. Mutually friended back. :)

I always appreciate new foods to taste. And I like possums! :)

I've never had macadamias fresh out of the shell, funnily enough. The ones I've had are either salted (usually over-salted), or caramelized. Though I do love nuts in general.

I hate the way they salt them so much! I think its to disguise the fact that they are stale.
My dad has a tree which nuts profusely almost continuously and if you get them just at the right time (when the outer shell goes brown and cracks away) then they are quite sweet in flavour. And very delicious. Of course you need serious hardware to get them open.

A nut tree! *envies* Unfortunately, our garden's pretty nutless, and we're not sure we're up to planting a tree for nuts as yet. But we are thinking of getting rid of at least one tree later this year, I think. Probably for an avocado though. Do macadamias take a long time to bear fruit?

Whenever we can get a big bag of nuts, we usually roast them with soy sauce or caramelize them. Walnuts and macadamias bring out all sorts of inner rodents and marsupials. :)

But not even a hamster can break open a walnut shell.

I think it takes about 7 years for them to get going. I have one that is 5 or 6 now and I counted about 20 nuts on it this year so I'm hopeful.
Never had much luck growing avocados...something always eats all the leaves...but that could be a local problem.

Roasted nuts = YUMMY! :)~~~

Macadamia shells are about 1/3 cm thick and harder than granite ><
They make walnut shells look like cardboard. They can dent your car when they fall so never plant them over driveways or roofs for that matter or you will be kept awake by the sound of minature billiard balls clattering on to it.

Thanks for that info. Yikes, I'm not sure we could plant a macadamia then. The fruiting age takes a while, and there probably isn't a spot where we could plant it without having branches within striking distance of the house.

Avocadoes are at a premium where we are, so it would be good to have a tree. There are dwarf variants that fruit early, and won't lurch over the house when older. The macadamia originally had appeal because I live in Western Australia, where the weather is dry and the soil is horrible. We figured an Australian native edible tree would fare better.
