Ideas And Tips:
• The cashew nut comes from a fruit-bearing tree that is originally native to northeastern Brazil. The term cashew derives from the Portuguese name of the tree “caju” which means “nut that produces itself”. Cashew trees grow in tropical regions and they are sensitive to frost. Cashews are rich in fiber, carbohydrates, iron and numerous vitamins. These nuts are used for cooking, making oil and butter, and alcoholic beverages. In traditional Mayan medicine, the leaves and bark of the cashew tree were used to treat diarrhea by turning them into tea.
• If the mixture is too thick, add more water.
• You can also use soy or almond milk instead of water.
• For a sweeter sauce, you can add honey, agave, or maple syrup.
