Most of the time when someone gives me a handful of nuts, it’s in the shell, of course. I guess I never thought about the nuts. Or their shells.
Until today it never dawned on me that cashews were don’t actually have shells. And, I should clarify, we love cashews in my family.
We make cashew butter, even cashew cheese for nachos, so it seems weird that I never wondered why they weren’t in our stockings. Now I know why, and it’s fascinating! Take a look!
So am I the only one totally wishing I could try a cashew apple now? I doubt they grow anywhere near where I live, but I’d love to see what one tastes like. Also, I kind of feel a little bad about all those cashews I ate now that I know how they’re shelled! I had no idea! Did you?
