Soaking and dehydrating nuts and seeds is not only easy... but yields a deliciously crispy, raw, and nutritious snack! Scroll for a helpful soaking chart, plus simple directions so you can learn how to soak and dehydrate nuts and seeds with only a few minutes of hands-on time!
Swirl the water around to dissolve the salt.
Rinsing is optional. Using a sprout screen with metal band really makes this easy.
Spread the nuts/seeds in a single layer on a dehydrator tray*.
Dry at 95 to 100 degrees Fahrenheit until crispy. This usually takes about 24 hours, depending on dehydrator and other conditions.
*If you don't have a dehydrator, you can use the sun during sunny months. Set out a tray full of soaked nuts/seeds in sunlight. Keep it covered with a light cloth to keep out dust and bugs.
Or, you can also use an oven between 115 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit to dehydrate nuts and seeds after soaking. Keep the nuts and seeds in the oven for 12 to 24 hours, stirring occasionally, until completely dry. Unfortunately, this does kill enzymes -- but you will also have nuts and seeds free of enzyme inhibitors.
If you don't want to (or can't) do it yourself, I highly recommend Wildly Organic's pre-soaked and dried nuts and seeds! Click here for more info.
