Roasted Sandalwood Nuts // Santalum spicatum

Sandalwood is a native shrub found in the arid interior of northern and western Australia. Eaten by Aboriginal Australians for the nutrient rich nuts as well as the leaves which were used as a medicinal tea. The kernels are a by-product, as the kernel shell is prized for its flavour when used for smoking meats and food. 

Uses:

Restaurants use Sandalwood Nuts for their delicious buttery, chewy texture. We recommend roasting with spices for a healthy snack, or crumbling the nut to be used as a nutritious and flavoursome almond-meal replacement in desserts, bread making, or cakes.

Health Benefits:

Sandalwood nuts contain important dietary fibre with over double the protein of the better known Macadamia. and is being used by restaurants for its deliciously buttery flavour. It's sustainably sourced from Western Australia, and is medium roasted to perfection for you to enjoy by itself, or to cook with.
