About Our Bulk Honey Roasted Cashews
Having been a part of humanity’s food stocks for centuries, Cashews find their origins in what is present day North Eastern Brazil. Cashew seeds, which are colloquially known as cashews, are actually the seeds of the cashew fruit or cashew apples. Strictly speaking, cashews are not nuts at all, but are seeds instead.
Today, cashews are widely cultivated in Nigeria, India, and Vietnam. Another interesting fact: you will never find cashews in their shell. Why? Because their shells contain toxins fatal to humans.
Culinary utilization of cashew seeds, like our bulk Honey Roasted Cashews, are similar to those of nuts.
✓ Large Cashews are praiseworthy for their starch content, which tree nuts do not have. This makes them more useful as a thickening agent in stews and soups than nuts.
✓ In Indian cuisine, they also use bulk Large Cashews as garnishes.
✓ We also recommend enjoying them all on their own as a delectable and filling snack.
Bulk Honey Roasted Cashews, like many nuts, contain a significant amount of oil. You can only store them in a pantry for a few months, so we recommend refrigeration. In the fridge, our Large Cashews will keep for up to six months. Freezing them, however, will enable them to stay fresh for up to a year.
Our Honey Roasted Cashews are dense in nutrients, similar to nuts. They pack a figurative ton of protein and dietary fiber. Cashews are also popular for their dense amounts of dietary minerals, namely manganese, magnesium, copper, and phosphorous.
