Nutrition Benefits of Cashews
Medical Medium states that “Cashews have the ability to satiate hunger which decreases overeating and aids in weight loss and weight management.” Cashews are a low fat nut and provide support with heart health, joints, tendons and ligaments (they help with flexibility) and help to relax the nervous system.
Muneeza’s Candied Cashews Recipe
- Place cashews and coconut sugar in ½ Cup water and bring to a boil over high heat.
- Mix all spices in a separate bowl.
- Once boiling, lower the heat to a simmer, stirring frequently. As the water evaporates, the sugar crystalizes around the nuts (5-6 minutes).
- Add spices into the pot and mix, trying to evenly coat all nuts. The sugar will eventually caramelize (1-2 minutes).
- Remove from heat and place on parchment paper to cool.
These nuts are great to use in Asian recipes like our Pad Thai Noodle Salad, they also make a lovely gift around the holidays (or anytime).
I hope you enjoy these candied cashews as much as we do!
To your health & happiness,
