Crispy, Oven Dehydrated, Nuts or Seeds: Almonds, Sunflower, Sesame or Pumpkin

Soak raw nuts or seed in water for 8 to 24 hours.

Drain in a colander.

Spread on a stainless steel baking pan

(We use a silicone non-stick mat for easier cleaning)

and place in the oven at its lowest temperature - 120 to 140 is best

(no more than 150 degrees)

with the convection fan on

for 12 to 24 hours for almonds,

4-8 hours for seeds

until completely dry and crisp.

Store in an airtight container.

This soaking process makes them more digestible and nutritious.

A great snack or sprinkle on salads.
