Macadamia nut stuffing

Only in Hawaii.


  1. blasphemy! only in australia i think you meant to say

    bloody thieves of our nuts...

  2. Are you saying macadamia nuts are from Australia?!

    Macadamia nuts are as Hawaiian as kochu is Korean!!!

  3. The first commercial orchard of macadamia trees was planted in the early 1880s by Charles Staff at Rous Mill, 12 km southeast of Lismore, New South Wales, consisting of M. tetraphylla.[3] Besides the development of a small boutique industry in Australia during the late 19th and early 20th century, macadamia was extensively planted as a commercial crop in Hawaii from the 1920s. Macadamia seeds were first imported into Hawaii in 1882 by William H. Purvis. The young manager of the Pacific Sugar Mill at Kukuihaele on the Big Island, planted seed nuts that year at Kapulena.[4]

    1. Thanks for that, Anne. The irony of my earlier comment is that kochu — the red peppers found in Korea's iconic kimchi and just about every other form of cuisine in the country — came to Korea from South America via Japan. And therefore it is somewhat meaningless to say "as Korean as kochi."
