Now this is the way to eat nuts! Nuts even in the raw form have an anti-nutrient called phytic acid. In order to get the most from our nuts, seeds and grains soaking is an age old time tested process. So as part of my health quest I soaked and roasted cashews for the first time. Yum. Crunchy, rich and so delightful are the finished product! This process takes only time and a long oven stint of 12 hours. Enjoy!
- 4 cups of raw cashews
- Filtered water
- sea salt
Cover raw cashews in a glass jar with warm filtered water. Add 1/2-1 tablespoon sea salt. Soak about 6 hours or overnight. Rinse the cashews after soaking. Put on a baking sheet or a 9 x 13 glass pan. Roast at 200 degrees for 12 hours. Cool and put in a glass jar with secure top for storage. Enjoy the crunch!
