How to Store and Prepare Cashews

If purchased in bulk, cashews should be transferred to an airtight container. No matter how they're stored, they should be kept away from significant sources of heat. Room temperature is acceptable for short-term storage. On a long-term basis, cashews can be kept in the fridge or freezer.

While often enjoyed on their own as a snack, cashews can also be incorporated into a variety of meals. They provide not only a delightfully nutty flavor but also a satisfying crunch. This makes them an excellent option for adding texture to several dishes and baked goods.

Here are a few convenient ways to include cashews in your favorite meals and snacks:

  • Combine cashews with dried fruit, chocolate chips, and other nuts to create a trail mix.
  • Toss cashews with romaine lettuce, tomatoes, and a hint of olive oil for a healthy and satisfying salad.
  • Add to a wrap featuring cubed chicken, mustard, and mayonnaise.
  • Combine with coconut, maple syrup, and rolled oats. Mix these ingredients before baking to form granola.
  • Sprinkle salted cashews on top of roasted green beans.
  • Enjoy with yogurt, granola, and fruit in a tasty parfait.
  • Prepare with rice, soy sauce, chicken, and red pepper flakes in a slow cooker.
  • Toss with lo mein noodles coated in oyster sauce and soy sauce.

Due to the sensitive nature of nuts, it is possible that some may be damaged or broken during transportation. In addition, we cannot guarantee that each pack contains 100% whole/unbroken products, but we make every effort to ensure our packaging is as secure and strong as possible. The nuts or other products may also be damaged or broken during transit from our manufacturers, so it is sometimes impossible to guarantee 100% whole contents without some broken pieces.
