CASHWH-5

Description:

The Cashew tree is a native of South America, but in the 16 th Century the Portuguese introduced it to East African colonies and India. Cashew nuts come from a kidney-shaped appendage that grows out from the bottom of the Cashew apple. The outer shell is ash-colored and very smooth. The Cashew kernel is covered with an inner shell, and between the two shells is found a thick caustic oil which can raise blisters on the skin. The Cashew apple is shaped similar to a pear and when ripe is a brilliant yellow, red or scarlet color. When ripe, the Cashew apple falls to the ground where it is easily gathered and the apple and nut are separated. The Cashew Apple i used for its juicy but acidic pulp and can be used in beverages, jams and chutney. Inside the hard shell is a slightly curved, white Cashew kernel in a thin brown skin called a testa which is removed during the processing. The resulting product is then roasted and lightly salted. Cashew nuts have a sweet, buttery flavor and contain about 48 percent fat.
