Crispy Pecans (and Almonds) Recipe Update

Here’s one of the easiest and best recipes for a healthy snack.  Crispy pecans are explained in Sally Fallon’s Book,  Nourishing Traditions.  I also use it with walnuts, almonds, and other nuts. Almonds are actually my favorite.

  For each 4 cups of nuts, add 2 teaspoons (or more) of sea salt.  I use the Redmond Salt products.

 Add enough filtered water to cover all of the nuts.  Stir and soak them for at least 12 hours.

Put nuts on a cookie sheet coated with butter (I don't always do) and put in the oven.  Cook in the oven at low heat (150 degrees or less is best) for 12 – 24 hours.  The lowest our oven will go is 170 degrees.  Turn the nuts occasionally. 


Remove and enjoy as a wonderful snack after the nuts are completely dry.  These nuts, pecans especially, can be used in other recipes such as pecan pies.
