Just found a recipe that calls for things named "macs". I would try it if I new what "macs" are. So what are they?:confused:

i would think it means macadamia nuts. but i could be wrong because i don't know the recipe or where you got the recipe from. maybe if you put the recipe on here, just to be sure that was it. that's my guess though :)

Here is the recipe:
Spinach and Potato Latkes
1 c macs, soaked 8 hrs and drained
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. celtic sea salt
1/2 c lemon juice
1 c rejuvelac or filtered water
1 c pinenuts, soaked 2 hrs and drained
6 c spinach, chopped fine
1 sweet onion, chopped fine
6 small red potatoes, grated
1/2 c ground flaxseed
1 tsp paprika
Place the macs, garlic, salt, lemon juice and water in a blender and blend until smoother. Add the pine nuts and blend well.
Fold the nut mixture into the spinach and add the onion and potato, stirring well.
Add the flaxseed. Stir well, and let sit for 15 minutes. If mixture separates, add more flaxseed.
Spoon onto Teflex sheets and pat down into latkes. Sprinkle paprika on them and dehydrate 6 to 8 hours. Turn over and dehydrate for 6 more hours. They should be dry but slightly moist.

Yes, macs are macadamia nuts. In most (if not all) recipes, if you do not have macs you can sub with cashews with very favorable results!

THANK YOU, I am going to start working on them right now!:)
Hi, just wanted to tell you've made that recipe twice now, with spinach and once with a few yellow squash shredded as i ran out of spinach and also added dill to the second batch. I use only about a 1/2 cup, of nuts total (no macs so i used cashews), even less actually, up the amount of water a little, add some black pepper, and also, most importantly, first soak the potatoes in a mixture of salt, lemon juice and water to draw out the starch. Soo good!
