In 1892, on this date, macadamia nuts were first planted in Hawaii. They are native to Australia. This was a rather a successful combination, and Hawaii was a leader in macadamia nuts until South Africa took over that role in 2010.
I am not a great fan of macadamias, preferring pecans and pistachios. When I think about successful combinations, I think about hazelnuts in Oregon, wine grapes in France, and potatoes in Ireland. I suppose there could be successful combinations with people, too, such as Julia Child in Paris.
What is your favorite nut? What are some successful combinations that you can think of?
