A Lesson in Cashews

I like to eat cashews. I dislike, strongly, the price of cashews. Well, now I know why they are so expensive. There is one cashew per fruit.

Also, they are toxic until they are roasted...roasted correctly. Even the smoke from the roasting is toxic and can be life threatening. Interesting, huh?...and a little freaky.

These cashews are growing in our neighborhood. Sadly, they will likely fall and rot...never to be enjoyed. It's a shame...yet, I just got the courage to drive around the city...not sure I'm ready to learn how to roast a toxic nut.
