Soaked, Salted, and Roasted Nuts

These are so good!  Soaking nuts  (our favorites are almonds, cashews, and walnuts) in salt water makes them much more digestible.

I buy raw nuts at Costco or in the bins at the health food store.

Take 4 cups of nuts and cover them completely with good, filtered water.

Add one tablespoon of good, air-dried sea salt.

Let them soak overnight.  The exception is cashews which should only soak for 6 hours or they will not work.

Spread them out on cookie sheets and put them in your oven or dehydrator on the lowest setting for several days until they are nice and crunchy.   We use these almonds to make the best Healthy Peanut Butter Cups.  They taste even better than Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and they are full of good, healthy ingredients for you and your children.  Warning:  They are very addicting!

These nuts make a great and healthy snack!
