We have developed a new range of super dried superfine nut slices or meals. These are particularly aimed at chocolatiers and patisserie chefs working with egg whites or any other situation where moisture is the enemy.

They can also be lightly roasted to bring our flavour.

Arno Sturny, Senior Lecturer "Pâtisserie", School of Hospitality and Tourism Faculty of Applied Humanities, Auckland University of Technology kindly used these new products to produce wonderful macaroons and has kindly shared his recipe.

Our nut pastes in the Ganache filling are also wonderful. Enjoy!

Method:

Place ground macadamia nuts and icing sugar into a food processor and process until fine

Whilst meringue is beating sieve nut mixture (this will facilitate easier folding into meringue)
Carefully fold nut mixture into meringue, stir until mixture turns glossy and starts losing volume, dropping of your wooden spoon
