We got these from Costco and the brand is Kirkland.
I happened to see something sticking out of a whole cashew and went to break it off. You know how some of them have a little 'tail' sticking out of the wider end?.....
Well, this one wasn't firm and it left a trailing web-like silk thread when I pulled at it.
My curiosity got the best of me and I opened the cashew.
The picture shows what I saw.
I was telling a friend about it and she said, "Well, since it's roasted, the little guy is dead and sterile so it won't hurt you". That made sense..........but I'm still not going to eat it.
I used to wonder why I always ate the halves and broken pieces.
I do not wonder any more.......
