|Cashews & Cashew Butter|
Cashew Butter has a "rich" flavor, is a popular sandwich spread, and can be used to make soups, sauces, and dips.
Related to pistachios, cashews are said to have originated in Brazil,
although they are now mainly grown in India and Africa, with India producing
90% of the world’s cashew crop. Cashew nuts are always removed from
their shells, known as "apples," and treated to remove a caustic
oil that is natural to the cashew. For that reason, cashew nuts are always
sold shelled and dried. Even so-called "raw" cashews have actually
been roasted to remove this toxic resin.
They are commonly added to Indian cooking, such as curries and rice dishes. When adding cashews to hot food, they should be added just before serving since they soften quickly when cooked.
In addition to using cashew butter as a sandwich spread, its rich flavor
makes it an ideal alternative to cream when thinned with liquid. It can
be used to make soups, sauces, and dips. It is especially good in Indian
dishes and curries. Because cashew butter is an unprocessed food, the
oil and solids sometimes separate in the jar but can easily be stirred
together before use.
Cashew Butter is particularly known for calcium, iron, protein, magnesium, the "B" vitamins and zinc. Please see our "nutrition" page for additional information.
