You can buy activated nuts in health stores, but it can be expensive. It is easy to make your own and store them in the freezer.

Why activated nuts? Nuts contain poisons in the husk and that make them difficult to digest. Soaking and drying them causes them to sprout, which activates enzymes that make them easier to digest and metabolise.

The wonder of this recipe is that the nuts really tastes "roasted", yet it is still raw. I simply love to flavour the nuts with all sorts of flavours after I have soaked them.

Salt and pepper is the obvious choice. I do want to challenge you to try new flavours and play around! During Thanksgiving the smell of cinnamon and pumpkin spice fills the air. During this season I simply love to soaks almonds or pecans and then flavour them with cinnamon, maple syrup, salt and ginger. Be creative and enjoy yourself!
