Cashew Note: It takes about 3-4 hours to soak cashews. (Simply soak raw cashews in a large bowl of warm water). It’s useful to soak them in batches, and then drain and refrigerate or freeze until ready to use.
Guar Gum Note: This cheesecake can be made without the guar gum. It lends something to the final texture, but isn’t critical. So, “ok” if you don’t have it!
