Anacardium occidentale, also known as cashew, cashew, cashew, cashew, cashew, caguil, casho or merey is a tree native to northeastern Brazil. Many of its components are used in the production of various products, such as sweets, cosmetics and medicines.
To elaborate the typical dried seeds of Merey, we only have to pick the fruit and separate the seeds in the form of a claw that is in the upper part and fire them to the fire.
Preferably to the stove or grill, but you have to have clean sand as do the natives of the area of
Brazil, to reduce the fire, because when exposing the seeds to fire, they dilute an acite that is very volatile and easily ignited , and as more heat is acquired, more flames emerge from them; You can also smother the fire with a cloth, but it is not as efficient.
Once the seeds are toasted, we move on to the process of separating the husks from the already roasted seeds and from there to enjoy your dried fruits.
