Did You Ever Wonder Where Cashews Come From?

I did.  I’ve been to a lot of places, and as I was eating some cashews this weekend, I wondered where they come from since I can’t remember ever seeing cashews growing anywhere!

Cashews are native of Brazil and India, and I have never been there, so that question is solved.

Cashews are the seeds of the Cashew tree.  Who knew?  This is what cashews look like when they are on the tree:

This is what cashews look like when you pick a bunch of them:

And, if you click here you can watch a short video of how they are picked, processed and packed.

Who knew?  Not me.
