How long soak nuts before roasting?
Also asked, should I soak nuts before roasting?
Soaking your nuts beforehand will lead to better absorption of the spices and result in a crunchier, easier to chew texture. You may be tempted to turn the heat up, but don't! If you roast them at too high a temperature you'll have a dark outside and a raw inside, leading to an inconsistent flavor.
Likewise, how do you soak nuts overnight? Place the warm water in a medium bowl or jar (half gallon or larger). Add the salt and let dissolve. Add the nuts or seeds, making sure they are completely submerged in the water. Leave uncovered on the counter or other warm place (not the refrigerator) for at least 7 hours, preferably overnight.
Secondly, which nuts should be soaked before eating?
As a general rule with nuts: the harder the nut, the longer the soak. Long-soak nuts (almonds, pistachios, and hazelnuts) need at least 8 hours. Medium-soak nuts (pecans, walnuts, and Brazil nuts) are oilier and swell up quickly, so require less soaking time.
Can you eat soaked nuts without drying them?
Soaking seeds and nuts is easy and you don't need a dehydrator to prepare your nuts for easy digestion. You can store soaked nuts in your refrigerator for 5-7 days until you eat them or use them in a recipe. To stock your pantry with soaked ingredients, however, you will need to dehydrate them.
