I love nuts.
I discovered the difference in taste after soaking and roasting nuts….the taste is amazing! And the benefits are as well, read here.
Soak a pound to a pound and a half of organic almonds at a time in spring water for approximately 12 hours, (overnight).
Drain and rinse the almonds once during the 12 hours – the water gets disgustingly dirty!
After the 12 hours rinse the almonds thoroughly and dry them on a flour sack or kitchen towel.
Transfer the almonds on two rimmed baking sheets and put them in the oven at 180* F for 12 hours.
Move the almonds around once or twice during cooking time, some tend to stick a little.
There is no need to use parchment paper or grease the pan.
Store in a glass container.
