When it comes to soaking nuts and seeds...
From what I understand, soaking essentially activates a nut or seed, similarly to the way that rain does in nature. It initiates the germination process, which increases enzyme activity and multiplies nutrients. It also removes dust, residue, tannins and any toxicity from the food, and makes it more digestible.
To soak, submerge seeds, nuts, grains or beans in warm, filtered water. Cover with a light cloth. Soaking times vary, but generally 4-12 hours is recommended. For almonds, 8-12 hours is suggested. Cashews: 2-4 hours. Pumpkin seeds: 8 hours. Quinoa: 4 hours. If these durations are not possible, some say as little as 20-30 minutes may still be of some value.
After soaking, rinse, and use as desired (be sure to dry items that you’re not using immediately, otherwise mold may form). I use soaked nuts in smoothies, to make milks, dips and more!
