Soaked and Dehydrated Nuts
--------------------------
From Nourishing Traditions, Sally Fallon.

Pecans or Walnuts
-----------------
4 cups of nuts
2 teaspoons sea salt
enough filtered water to cover

Combine nuts, water to cover and sea salt. Soak for 7 or more hours (I did
mine overnight).

Drain and dehydrate 12-24 hours, until completely dry and crisp.

Be sure to store walnuts in the refrigerator as they can become rancid
easily.

Almonds
-------
4 cups raw almonds, preferably skinless
1 tablespoon sea salt
enough filtered water to cover

Combine nuts, water to cover and sea salt. Soak for 7 or more hours (I did
mine overnight).

Drain and dehydrate 12-24 hours, until completely dry and crisp.

Store in pantry.

Cashews
-------
4 cups of raw cashews
1 tablespoon sea salt
enough filtered water to cover

According to Sally Fallon cashews can become slimy and disagreeable if you
soak them too long or dry them out too slowly, so be careful. I have yet to
try this with cashews so I have no personal experience.

Combine nuts, water to cover and sea salt. Soak for 6 hours, no longer

Drain and dehydrate at 200 degrees F for 12-24 hours, or until completely
dry and crisp.

Store in an airtight container.
