How much do you know about cashew?
Cashew is a bean shaped nut that grows on a tropical evergreen tree. The fruit is kidney-shaped and has a double shell. People who touch the shell sometimes develop skin rashes/blisters; this is the reason why cashew nuts are always sold shelled and dried.
The kernel, which is sweet, oily, and nutritious, is often used for food in the tropics after being roasted to destroy the caustic juice. It yields the light-colored oil which is said to be the equal of olive oil and is utilized in various culinary ways.
