We think it's high time that cashews got the appreciation they deserve. They have a delicate sweetness and near creamy texture that makes them an exquisite snack and versatile ingredient in cooking, backed up by an exotic pedigree.
After all, they're among the most popular nuts outside of the U.S., especially in India and other points Far East, where most of the world's cashews are produced. We source these from their native South America, where the nuts have been grown for thousands of years and are still a beloved staple, right along with coconut and cassava. And here's a fun fact: Unlike many other nuts, you'll never see cashews still in their shells because those shells contain an itchy oil that's related to poison ivy and sumac. Make that a no-fun fact.
Cashews are an excellent source of good fats and a multitude of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to help you feel your best. They're also uniquely favored by vegans, who grind the creamy nuts to make a "butter" substitute to use in every kind of baking imaginable. But you can use them to make curries and other Far Eastern favorites, though they're snackability is reason enough to keep them in steady supply.
