Activated nuts

We bought a little dehydrator recently, to try it out before going for a big one! There are loads of fascinating blogs and articles about the health benefits of #activatednuts, but at the end of the day, I tend to defer to Catherine Saxelby’s research and agree. Health benefits or not,  either way, they taste better! I dehydrated almonds, brazil nuts and macadamias in my first attempt and followed the processes of washing, then soaking the nuts in filtered water with a pinch of Himalayan rock salt, covered and left sit for 12 hours,

Next day, I dried them and dehydrated for 12 hours. You could always dehydrate in a slow oven if you don’t have a dehydrator.

 

The proof was in the eating! My husband is a nut addict, and he noticed a huge difference. How about you? Have you ever activated nuts? I’m keen to try a few different flavours and wonder what kaffir lime leaves, chilli and rock salt would be like. Hmmmm I might just have to try that out.
