are wrapped up and waiting to go to Kirsten the self declared lurker...sometimes it is worth making a comment!
You were all right; macadamia nuts are expensive because it costs lots to make and mantain the equipment necessary to crack then shell without squishing the nut to bits. Season by season weather and transport are factors but not the overarching reason.
Mother nature was a goddess when she created the macadamia nut but right now she is not very happy ~ While Queensland cleans up after our devastating floods and families grieve for those who have died or are still missing; waters well up around Victorian country towns flooding one after the other.. Over in Western Australia, bush fires that were deliberately lit continue to burn.
Watching the news from Brazil was just too much for me today ~ over 600 dead. I cannot even begin to imagine. Does anyone know of a reputable agency we can donate through?
