‘Ordinary’ cashew nuts are heat treated by necessity in the cropping process. Cashew grow from the base of the cashew apples, a fruit that we don’t commonly eat. These fruits contain an acrid oil called urishiol, to remove the urishol most cashews world-wide are subject to fairly intense heat to clean the nuts and remove this natural substance. Therefore these nuts are not truly raw. We have however, after many years of searching, managed to source some truly raw cashews. These are laboriously and meticulously air dried at ambient temperatures to remove the urishiol, the process takes considerably longer and therefore it is not usually financially viable from but we have finally located a small organic growers co-op who do use this method. Our next consignment is mid way between us and Vietnam as we speak!
