    Default candle nuts / kemiri

    Kemeri ( candle nuts ) are available via online stores ( like
    Indonesianfoodmart.com )
    Please do not compare them to macademia nuts or others, kemiri nuts
    are different, if eaten raw you could
    get really sick, there is a substance in it which is a bit poisoness
    if not cooked, it is used in the Indo kitchen to thicken sauces.

    That reminds me of the herb and spice sections of
    many Mexican food stores -- they shelve culinary herbs
    right next to folk medicine herbs, often made and
    packaged by the same company, some of which are quite
    dangerous if used as culinary herbs by the unwary.
    Arnica is a particularly good example of this hazard.
