Description & Use: Called candle nut because of their high oil content, the oil has been extracted for making lamp oil. Candle nuts look similar to macadamia nuts, however their taste is quite different. WARNING: candle nuts are toxic when eaten raw, however the toxicity dissipates upon cooking. The roasted slivers have a pleasant nutty flavour and candle nut is used in many Asian dishes, particularly curries, as a thickening agent.
