View Full Version : Germinating Nuts and Seeds
08-16-2009, 02:32 PM
I'm sorry if this has been answered, I've been looking and I can't come up with the answer. Is it possible to soak my nuts and seeds then dry them and keep them either in the freezer or pantry so that they are ready to use??? I would guess the pantry is a bad idea anyway, but I don't know. Thanks for the help.

Yes, a lot of people do this in order to have nuts ready to use at all times.
I agree with Seven above - I do this all the time. I actually learned this by watching Rene Oswald's videos on YouTube. She calls it her "stash" and that's what I do.
I'm fortunate to have a second fridge in our basement and that's where I keep all my soaked & dehydrated nuts and seeds. I just finished up 3 sprout bags full of sunflower seeds yesterday. In fact, I learned from her videos to actually sprout the sunflower seeds before dehydrating. Mine have pretty little tails on them. She explained that they're more nutritious that way vs. just soaking (like I had always done before). It does involve an extra step and another day or two - but I love the whole process.
I pick up quart (wide mouth) mason jars at yard sales and thrift stores and keep all my stash in glass in the second fridge. Then I keep another bag of unsoaked nuts (my back ups!) in the freezer. So for example I'll have almonds soaked & dehydrated & ready to use in the fridge and another bag (unsoaked) in the freezer. I don't like to run out of anything. It works well for me. *Ü*
