I soaked cashews in my fridge for 4 days (forgot about them)...will it be harmful if I use them anyways?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
if they have been refrigerated, i cannot think they would be harmful. But why have they been soaked?
Cashews have a soak time of 2-4 hours, so 4 days is a really long time. Personally, I would throw them away. Bacteria could grow quite a bit in that amount of time and I'd imagine that their texture would have changed by now.
