Anyone know where I can buy raw cashews in Montreal?

I am making a friend who is allergic to dairy a birthday cake but I need 3 cups of raw cashews. Anyone know where I can buy some, preferably the Plateau/Mile End area. Merci!

  1. Any of the various health food stores in Montreal should be able to hook, you up.

    1. I have bought some at PA on Parc recently.

      1. Any chance you could post the recipe? Not on this topical board at chowhound, perhaps home cooking or special diets?

          Thanks Stak. I shop at PA and I was thinking they might have them too. I'll give them a call. Lagatta, the recipe is taken from and it's called a raw strawberry cheesecake. check it out! Let you know how it turns out. thanks again everyone.

            I have made raw strawberry cheesecakes before. Delicious! Good luck!

            (You could also post your results in the Vegan & Vegetarian board, if'n you want.)

              I was at PA the other day & they had some for $20 per kg, right by the door. Also happened to be at Rachelle-Bery, where they were $32 per kg but organic.

          2. With one day's notice, you can pick up a kilo from Prana in Mile End-- organic, raw, $25 for 1 kg.


            1. Pretty much any Indian or Sri Lankan store will have raw cashew nuts, especially those catering to a more South Indian clientele. If you ask for the broken ones, you can usually get them at a far better rate than the whole ones, which, if you are blending them, is more what you want.
