How do I dry roast my own macadamia nuts?
 
My favourite mac nuts from Costco are considered a seasonal item and won't be back in stock until Nov/Dec holiday season, so I've decided to try to dry roast my own and season with sea salt til then.

How would I do this?

I like to roast nuts in my cast iron skillet rather than the oven. Less of a chance of them getting burned that way.

I melt a little butter on med or med high, then add a single layer of nuts and just keep them moving around the skillet until they start to brown. That's the tricky part, you need to get them lightly brown in the skillet but no darker because they will continue to brown after you take them off the heat and they burn easily. Then I sprinkle them with sea salt and that's it!

Try it with a few nuts at first, then go for it!

I don't know which state you're in but our warehouse has them back now. 2 different brands too. One of them in the nut/snack area and another back near the deli cold cases in a special grouping of things.

I'm in Canada and I've gone to a couple of Costco's near me and at one I was told they were not going to be available anytime soon and at the other location I was told they are a seasonal item and only are in stock for the Holiday season. This is the Kirkland store brand-Mauna Loa i'm looking for.
