Great mkamionka 2022-03-28 2:22

Hi Jorge,
I had to jump to this photo.
Cashews are favorite nuts of my daughter. I don't remember eating them when I was a child in Poland but we didn't have many options there in the Communist time.
Over time I learned all sorts of nuts but to be honest it was always a mystery how they grow. Well with the exception of walnuts which were growing nearby.
So for the first tie I have seen a photo of a cashew growing recently. It is really hard to imagine for me how it is being processed.
Great reportage,
M

Default To mkamionka: cashew video

I attached a video showing as the locals burn the cashew nuts to eat, the industrial process is different, made with boiling water, if I am not wrong.

Hi Jorge,
Thanks for that. I watched it. I am still confused a bit. So the red part is edible but the lower part which hides the nut is partially toxic. Is there a possibility that if you don't burn it well enough you can get poisoned?

Default cashew nut

yes, the red part is edible crude.
the nut should be roasted before to eat, I presume the poison lost part of its power even with the not completed cycle of fire, the oil of the poison burns like gasoline. I did that some days ago using an old pan, the oil became black and glued in the pan, but I ate the seeds.
the case of manioc is similar, it should be exposed to the fire or boiled to evaporate the cyanide it has inside.

take care

jorge
