I also found out that wearing gloves when dehulling is more than a cosmetic matter. Not only did one fingertip turn black, but the skin eventually came off like a blister. At least I got to surprise (or horrify) those who saw me. Tee hee
I once picked a cashew off the ground that had just fallen, and being a little unknowlegable
about such things,used my teeth to take the skin off ...which caused my lips to peel over a few days
Musn't have learnt because another time I peeled a mango with my teeth,and the stem sap burnt..
AND I chewed a piece of raw cassava that made my mouth feel full of needles and dry............
