Prep Time
Prep Time
  1. In a large bowl place your nuts or seed of choice.
  2. Dissolve salt in enough water to cover the amount of nuts/seeds you are activating.
  3. Cover with the salt water solution.
  4. Soak the nuts or seeds for the specified time according to the chart below (see soaking time chart)
  5. Strain and rinse the nuts when the specified time has lapsed.
  6. Spread the nuts or seeds over a dehydrator rack, or baking tray.
  7. Place in the oven on a low heat (90 degrees) or dehydrator until completely dry and the moisture is removed. The dehydrator is a longer drying process but helps to keep activated nuts active. The oven can stop the germination process, however it will get the job done in drying the nuts and seeds after they enzyme inhibitors have been removed.
  8. Eat the activated nuts as they are or make flour from them by grinding the nuts in a strong blender like a vitamix or thermo until you have a flour like consistency.
  9. Store nuts, seeds or nut flours in an air tight container.
