cashew cream

1 lb of raw cashews.  I soaked in cold water over night in the fridge.  My mom soaks hers in warm (not hot) water for 15-30 minutes.  I also read some recipes where they didn't soak at all.  Rinse and put in blender.  I wanted mine thicker so I added water just to the top.  If you want it less thick go an inch above the cashews with the water.  Blend until smooth (will be slightly grainy.)  I have a Vita Mix and have read that if you don't have one you may have to strain out some chunks.  It will refrigerate for up to a week.  I freeze it in smaller containers and take them out as I need them. Makes 5 cups.
