The minute you step foot into Nicaragua, you instantly see people selling cashews everywhere you go.
It is an interesting place to visit as everyone is trying their best to survive, which means selling freshly harvested goods, sunglasses, hats, purses, t-shirts.
Cashews that are truly organic are one of the many secrets hidden in the country of about 6.2 million residents.
Most people don’t realize it, but cashews are actually a fruit. After the fruit is picked, the cashew seed which hangs at the bottom is roasted, which gives it an excellent taste. The portion of the cashew that connects to the tree can be used to make fresh juice after the cashew is harvested from the bottom.
Dried and roasted cashews are sold on the streets of Nicaragua like newspapers are sold at some intersections throughout the United States.
