Macadamia Honey Uses
This true and pure Macadamia Honey can be enjoyed in a variety of ways.
My favourite is combined with Greek Yoghurt. I could waffle for lines about this and still not do it credit. Do yourself a favour and just try it. 😊
Used in a marinade, it provides a distinctive tantalising taste to your lamb or beef Sunday roast.
In baking, Macadamia Honey provides something special when added to traditional recipes such as for banana bread, nutty biscuits or muffins.
For a breakfast treat drizzle your honey over your favourite muesli, mix in with yoghurt or use in your latest fresh fruit and vegetable smoothie.
The sweet nutty flavour of Macadamia Honey makes it a delicious addition to pancakes, waffles and the ice-cream of your choice.
Bees & Trees and Macadamia Honey
Bees create the distinctive and delicious Macadamia Honey from the nectar and pollen of our native Australian Macadamia trees. The Macadamia Honey we sell mainly comes from bee hives within the Macadamia nut orchards in the hinterland of Byron Bay.
These Macadamia trees flower just before and during spring when they produce sprays each containing an abundant of small white blossoms. A Macadamia tree can have up to 2,500 flowers on a single tree. Most flowers open over two days and it can take up to a week for the tree to be in full bloom.
Each flower contains only a little nectar which is collected by bees in the morning. In the afternoon the bees collect pollen from the Macadamia flowers. Both nectar and pollen are taken back to the hive where the magic of Macadamia Honey occurs.
Once the flowering season is over, Macadamia trees (which can reach 20 metres) produce the very popular Macadamia nuts around March
