National Cashew Day

Cashews, nuts that are grown on the cashew tree and eaten raw or in recipes, are celebrated today. The cashew tree is native to northeastern Brazil, and its nuts began being exported by the Portuguese in the 1550's. Today the top four producers of cashew nuts are India, the Ivory Coast, Vietnam, and Brazil. The nuts are rich sources of copper, manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, thiamin, vitamin B6, and vitamin K. They are popular in Indian, Thai, and Chinese cuisines, and are popular snack foods on their own, where they may be eaten plain, roasted, or salted. They can also be made into cashew butter, oil, and milk. About 5% of people are allergic to cashew nuts.

How to Observe National Cashew Day

Celebrate the day by eating cashews. Eat them on their own or as part of a recipe.
