@disciples: You can find raw cashews anywhere you find bulk foods, including Bulk Food Warehouse, Whole Foods Market and Super Saver Grocery stores. They are typically found in large, clear plastic containers where bulk coffee, candy and grains are available.
I have always roasted my own and I also make my own cashew milk. I make everything from sweet to savory and from spicy to mild, depending on the event where I will serve them. If it is just for my husband and me, I tend to prefer slightly sweet (such as a light caramel or honey roasted) or a savory with fresh herbs (dill, garlic, onion, thyme or basil).
