  • 1 + pounds raw almonds walnuts, cashews, etc
  • 1 tablespoon unrefined sea salt
  • filtered water to cover


  1. To soak nuts: Place 2-3 lbs raw nuts in a large bowl (they will swell, so only fill 2/3 full, using another bowl if needed). Add 2 tablespoons sea salt and cover the nuts with filtered water. Allow to soak overnight at room temperature (on the counter). No need to cover.
  2. To dry:
  3. Drain in a colander and start dehydrating the nuts you soaked last night, or roast in a pan as low as your oven will go. Dehydrate all day.
