Last month I was invited to attend a local event where I met with Sahale Snacks. There I was able to try almost every flavor that they make. And I have yet to find one that I don’t, they were all unique and really flavorful. Even my son, who swears he hates nuts said these were delicious. He took the flavor profile quiz and his favorite flavor was actually the same as his profile, the Raspberry Crumble Cashews mix.
ABOUT SOME OF THE FLAVOR PROFILES
· Raspberry Crumble Cashews Mix: A unique take on mom’s raspberry crumble with the mellow smoothness of sliced bananas and a crunchy, buttery cashew and peanut topping.
· Berry Macaroon Almond Mix: Inspired by a love for macaroon cookies, a combination of lightly toasted coconut, crunchy almonds and cashews balanced by whole sweet blueberries and a touch of tangy lemon.
· Honey Almonds Glazed Mix: Whole almonds and cranberries accented by toasted sesame seeds, sea salt and honey.
· Pomegranate Vanilla Flavored Cashews Glazed Mix: A sublime flavor combination: whole roasted cashews, pomegranate infused apples, and pure ground Madagascar vanilla bean.
· Classic Fruit + Nut Trail Mix: Dried apples and cranberries, mixed with roasted almonds, cashews and pistachios for a perfect crunchy-chewy balance.
These are the flavors I took home with me: California Almonds, Berry Macaroon ALmond Mix, Honey Almonds, Pomegranate Vanilla Flavoried Cashews, Raspberry Crumble Cashew Mix, and Classic Fruit and Nut Trail Mix. I also took home a bag of the very yummy Thai Cashews.
Picking a favorite flavor is actually very difficult….I love the Sahale California Almonds, and I would add those to my salad, eat them plain and on top of ice cream. I also loved the Tai Cashews, they were the perfect combination of a little sweet and a little savory. Thai is one of my favorite foods to eat. YUM! They even inspired me so much I created this fun recipe. A Thai Curry Cashew Brittle.
SO we started off with the bag of Sahale Thai Cashews and we couldn’t stop ourselves from having another taste before we made our recipe.
Thai Curry Cashew Brittle Recipe
Two cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1 stick unsalted butter
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon Curry Powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
12 ounces Sahale Thai Cashews
In a large saucepan combine the sugar, water, butter and corn syrup and bring to a boil. Cook over medium heat stirring occasionally, until the caramel is light brown and registers 300 on a candy thermometer (about ten minutes)
We didn’t have a full 12 ounces of Sahale Thai Cashews so we added Cornflakes and Coconut flakes.
