How long do you dehydrate certain seeds and nuts?

For instance…Sunflower seeds…pumpkin, cashews, etc? All the often used seds and nuts. I’m nervous that I won’t do them long enough and they will end up going rancid. Any advice for a newbie? Thanks.


  • Hi Patou. I soak my sunflowers and dehydrate them for about 6 to 8 hours.For me that is good.Now,almonds I soak them and leave them on the bag to dry out over night.I’ve never done cashews nor pumpkin.Hope I did help a little bit.

    24 hours of dehydrating is a good rule of thumb. Enjoy!
