  • 2-3 tbsp lemon juice


  • Place the macadamias in a bowl, cover with 2 cups of cold water and soak for between 8 and 24 hours.
  • Drain and rinse the macadamias and place in a food processor. Add 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice and process as finely as possible. If you prefer, use a blender. Add remaining lemon juice to taste. If nuts appear dry, add up to 3 tablespoons of boiling water to create desired consistency.
  • Allow to stand for 1 hour before serving. Store refrigerated for up to 1 week.
