Macadamia anyone?

Next we headed to San Miguel Dueñas to visit the macadamia nut farm. We had a tour in English that explained that the two types of edible nuts come from two trees with either pink or white flowers.

The trees each make six sizes of nuts that are sorted, dried, and the shells are removed.

They can then be salted, are made into butters, oils, or creams. Here you can get a free facial, and some yummy macadamia pancakes.
