Here ye, here ye... it's National Macadamia Nut Day folks! While many link this delicious seed to Hawaii because of all the ~tropical~ recipes it enhances, the macadamia actually originated in Australia!

That's right, Australians have indulged in macadamia for some time now. Down under they refer to the nut as "gyndle" or "kindal kindal." The gyndal was introduced to the West by Allan Cunningham in the 19th century.

Thank heavens he did! Fast forward a hundred years and macadamia nuts are integrated into all kinds of recipes, from granola and fish, to tarts and muffins.

We've rounded up all the ways you can enjoy macadamia for every single meal today! With all the health benefits the tiny nut has, you should definitely go all out!
