Here is Brazil, cashew fruit are available at any fruit stand.
I tried the fruit. So much water spilling out I think it should be called watermelon. Very stringy and not so delicious, but edible.
Once I finished the fruit, I looked at the stem looking thing.
Wait, so you’re telling me there’s a cashew nut in here? That’s awesome!
It was too hard to crack with my fingers, so I used my teeth to try to crack it open. It was actually chewy, not hard, so I bit it again a couple of times to try to get it to open.
Eww hang on, that tastes bitter. Yo wow ow holy cats it’s terrible flavor.
I felt a tiny bit woozy walking to the bar to find something to wash down the flavor. Was it poisonous??
Here is what I wrote to myself:
Note to self Do not chew cashew nut case to get the cashew out Worst taste ever I have consumed Two pieces of cake One cup of yogurt One glass of orange juice And I can still taste the cashew shell flavor
Cup of yogurt, cup of porridge, and 15 minutes later, I can still taste it. It kinda feels like it damaged my tongue like a burn (acid)?
The shell of the cashew nut contains oil compounds which may cause contact dermatitis similar in severity to that of poison ivy, primarily resulting from the phenolic lipids, anacardic acid, and cardanol. Due to the possible dermatitis, cashews are typically not sold in the shell to consumers.
