    Here's a funny version about cashew's (start at 7:14)





    I also LOVE cashews. They are delicious!

    yourname2000 saidWell, not "really" an apple....they're called cashew apples, but they're a "false fruit", I believe (since the seed doesn't grow inside). Apparently they're edible though. I've never seen them anywhere though.

    Love raw cashews....I think T and I ate half a pound together last night, lol. So buttery....OH MY GOD I WANT SOME RIGHT NOW!!!!! [puts "back in 5min" sign on store door....runs to market down the street.]

    Mmmmmm. Cashews.


    The plant is tropical, and (as I understand it) the fruit doesn't ship well, so you probably won't see the fruit for sale outside the tropics.

    Those apples are quite tasty, but a tinny bit acid.

    Peal, cut in chunks, boil in water with generous amounts of sugar, let it gel a little, let it cool down, eat and be transported to paradise.
