Raw Almonds

We belong to a group that gets real food, fresh from the farmers, and once a year we are able to order truly raw, untreated, almonds.

We order a 50 pound box.

And the day the almonds arrive we stop whatever we are doing and get them measured out, vacuum sealed, and into the freezer.

We eat almonds every day.

When we are close to running out of them in the kitchen, I pull a bag from the freezer, dump them into a bowl of water with a tablespoon of sea salt, and soak them overnight.

Then I put them in my dehydrator at about 105 degrees, and dry them until they are crispy. It make take up to 4 days. Sometime in the future I will do a separate post on that.

Here we have our 50 pounds of almonds ready for the freezer!

Thanks for stopping by.
