So weird. Is the "fruit" edible?

5. Yes it is. Sweet and juicy but very perishable.

However, the cashew is not. It has to be shelled and roasted to remove the toxin.

7. I stayed with a friend in Brazil last year

and she had a variety of fruit and nut trees on her property. The cashew was the most unexpected looking. Her housekeeper made drinks out of all of them.

I love them. I'd love to see some enterprising gourmand in Vietnam or India start to bottle the juice. I think there would be a market for it.

13. There's a video of a mostly mechanized processing plant in Vietnam

The workers are wearing gloves and masks, but the machinery made my fingers hurt.

There are foods out there that sort of amaze me that our ancestors were desperate enough to try: sea urchin, bird's nests, and cashews top the list.

...that artichokes were edible.

22. Yeah; you have to wonder.

I'll bet the person who found that the cashew can be eaten had to eat alot of awful stuff before his discovery.

23. It may have been the guy or gal who founded the Giant Artichoke restaurant in Castroville CA.

When I lived in California, it was a required stop when my tourist friends from the East went on the Big Sur/San Francisco/Lake Tahoe/Yosemite/Kings Canyon/Sequoia/Mohave Tour out of LA, and eventually, San Diego.

I don't know if the Giant Artichoke restaurant is still there, but I hope it is. I'm not sure if the fried artichoke hearts were good for you, but they were delicious.

24. Got some firsthand experience with the Poison Ivy connection.

When I was young I had some really serious poison ivy infections. I am sure my body built up some sort of immune reaction to that plant.

Years later I consumed some cashews in a mix and shortly afterwards I felt like I was going to die- literally. It took hours to recover. Now, I had had cashews before and had no effect so I really didn't connect this incident to the cashews.

Then I had some straight from a can - no confusion with other food consumption - and the death stalked me again. Found out when I investigated cashews I came across the poison ivy connection and put 2 and 2 together.

Have stayed away religiously since and never have had a reoccurrence.

Great video showing the dangers here.

15. I totally didn't believe it when someone who grew up on a farm in Haiti told

me. Recently someone who grew up in El Salvador told me they dump the cashew and eat the fruit.

We could pick them, roast and salt them ourselves. It was a pretty fun experience.

Not because I fear Ebonites, but I remember regularly watching The Outer Limits.

As a tot, I begged to be allowed to stay up for it, only to panic and flee when the Control Voice took over.
