Plain Cashews FAQ
What minerals do cashews contain?
They include minerals like copper, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, iron, and selenium, all of which are so important for a variety of bodily functions that we can’t go without them.
How do you soften cashews quickly?
To soak, just place the cashews in a bowl and cover with water by an inch, then cover and soak at room temp up to 4 hours, and put in the refrigerator if soaking overnight. If you’re in a hurry you can soak them for 15 minutes in very hot but not boiling water.
How do I store cashews to keep them fresh?
Store cashews in a cool, dry place in an airtight container to avoid absorption of other food odors. At room temperature, they will not last long, but if you refrigerate them, they can last up to six months. Cashews may also be stored in the freezer for up to one year.
