This story starts in the middle of a tropical jungle, on an island in the Indian Ocean, right next to a huge volcano. It’s the story of the This is Nuts Skin-on Cashews.
The cashew nut might very well be the undisputed master of all nuts (even though it’s technically a seed and not a nut). People just love everything about it, from its curved shape to its crunchy yet creamy texture. And if they are not tasty enough as they are, they come in a variety of flavors, from simply salted to more complex seasonings ranging from sweet to hot. There is however a newcomer to town; one that is set to change the way we eat the nut forever - the This is Nuts Skin-on Cashews.
On the foothills of Mount Agung in Eastern Bali lies a small village that strives mainly from one particular thing, growing cashews. Every morning villagers come into the farm, which is also a factory, to harvest, sun-dry, peel and roast cashews. From afar, it looks like any other farm that grows the nut around the world, but this particular farm stands out for its ability to produce skin-on cashews.
The reason you have never seen a cashew nut in its shell is because it’s actually toxic. Actually, it is botanically related to the poison-ivy, and just like the nasty plant, the Urushiol that lines the inside of the shell can cause a painful rash. For this reason, all the cashew nuts you’ve eaten (unless you’ve tried skin-on cashews) have been completely stripped naked.
While big corporations want to mass produce in the cheapest and fastest way possible, our friends in Bali have another focus. By giving each nut individual attention, they have developed a technique that allows to leave the thin layer of skin that lies directly on the cashew nut intact.
“Well, what difference does it make?,” you ask. Besides adding a heavenly satisfying crunch to it, the skin-on cashew is superior in nutritional value.
