Our Favorite Cashew Recipes For National Cashew Day

The cashew is a beloved snacking nut that can be used in many different ways. Wait a second, though; we can’t go on without clarifying one thing. Cashews are actually seeds harvested from cashew trees, which are native to northeastern Brazil. They grow inside a shell (nut), but cannot be distributed in the shell because of an inedible fluid that grows inside it. With the growth in popularity, cashew trees are now grown in many tropical climates.

 

Fun Fact: The largest cashew tree in the world is located in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil, and covers about 81,000 square feet!

 

Cashews are great sources of protein and energy, and they actually cause fewer allergic reactions than other nuts. They are rich in manganese, copper, magnesium, and phosphorus, all of which are essential trace minerals.

 

Fun Fact: The cashew tree has a fruit called the cashew apple. A lot of people in Latin American countries make a drink from this fruit.
