A good friend of ours returned from Australia a few weeks ago and gave us this interesting bottle of lemon myrtle infused macadamia oil, complete with “I was so sure you would know what to do with this…” Yeah, right. It is a wonderful present and we are grateful; we just haven’t ever come across this before. The bottle reads “Cold-pressed macadamia oil, high in mono-unsaturated fat. this oil has been infused with Lemon Myrtle to creale a light and flavourful salad dressing, basting oil or marinade.” But salad dressing with what type of acid, lemon juice? Basting oil for chicken? Or marinade for fish? You guys have any ideas? Myrtle, by the way, I had to look it up, is a fragrant shrub which sometimes has edible berries. The Ancient Greeks considered it sacred to Venus, according to Alan Davidson. The best sounding suggestion(s) offered by Marketmanila readers (that is doable for Marketman) will be attempted and featured in a future post… My best idea would be to make a heavy lemon pound cake with whole macadamia nuts and some of this lemon myrtle oil to flavor it… What do you think???
