I use these as the first item in my blender to make creamy smoothies. I follow the recipes of Ani Phyo's raw food kitchen. Yum and a great detoxifyer (these smoothies I mean). I also fry them in a little sunflower oil and then set them aside as I prepare my dish and then mix them through it! When I attended the Women's Conference in Costa Rica, I noticed that cashew's aren't nuts. They are the next stage of dried flower petals of this treee. Amazing.
There are usually 4 varieties in the market 1) Natco / Fudco with produce of various countries Costs 7.50 for 750 Grams, if you eat directly there is no taste, you need to fry and eat. 2) Produce of Vietnam, almost same cost, taste is better. 3) Waitrose, I heard its good, but never tried as its bit expensive 4) These cashews, you can feel the taste of Indian cashews, crispy and crunchy, bit expensive though.
A good choice for snacking on and even though they are high in calories the fat is unsaturated so much easier to burn off. Because these are unsalted it makes them even more ideal as a healthy snack. A 1kg bag doesn`t last to long in my household though, so find a good hiding place ;-)
I was really pleased when they arrived because they were clean and no broken nuts. I do not find them particularly tasty so I would not buy them to eat - I use them in my vitamix to make soups creamy without adding dairy.
I bought these cashews and glad I did, after being disillusioned by my former supplier. These are consistently nice jumbo sized cashew kernels. They taste fresh and delicious, so I will be buying these nuts from now. .
