Did you know that the cashew nut is native to Honduras? Big cashew plantations can be found at the Bay Islands and along the Caribbean coast. Usually, the ripe fruit is harvested in the spring.
The soft matured fruit is red or yellow-orange color, has sharp flavor, and is very juicy and delicious. Hondurans use it in cashew fruit juice, jams, jelly, and to make a tasty wine. Roasted nuts are added to pies, salads, and other dishes. Cashew nuts are tender and oily to the taste. In small quantities, they fill the body with the necessary nutrients.
