This turned out really nice;I've never made pesto using macadamia nuts; wow! I used a mixture of freshly crushed peppers for monutain pepper and to replace the bush tomato I used Old Bay seasonning. I really thought 1 1/2 cup of oil too much for me so I used only 1/3 cup and it turned our great. I made this for ZWT 5 Autralia/NewZealand. Thanks for posting
