Roasting salted cashew nuts is a simple process that can enhance their flavor and make them more enjoyable as a snack. Here is a basic method for roasting salted cashew nuts:
- Raw cashew nuts
- Butter or oil (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C).
- In a bowl, mix the raw cashew nuts with a small amount of melted butter or oil, if desired.
- Add salt to taste and mix well.
- Spread the cashew nuts in a single layer on a baking sheet.
- Place the baking sheet in the oven and roast the cashew nuts for about 10-15 minutes, stirring them every 5-7 minutes. The nuts should turn golden brown and have a fragrant aroma when done.
- Once done, remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the cashew nuts cool down to room temperature.
Roasted salted cashew nuts can be enjoyed as a snack on their own or mixed with other nuts and seeds. They can also be used in a variety of recipes, such as salads, stir-fries, and other dishes. Store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to several weeks.
