She's nuts!

I like my soaked nuts to snack on so I dehydrate them. How can I get the sea salt to stick on there without adding a whole bunch of ingredients. i just like them whole with salt. I’d use a little oil after dehydrating if you think that will help make the salt stick. That would be fine.

    i wonder, if you rinsed them in a bowl of well disolved salt water b4 dehydrating them if that wouold leave a salty residue.

    let me know if you try it

    Why not try sprinkling the salt on the almonds on the dehydrator sheets before you dry them? Or is that what you did?

    I agree with dodo… soak them in salty water, that’s gotta do the trick!

    I know it’s not sea salt, but I soak mine in nama shoyu and then dehydrate, they are great. Peanuts made like this taste like roasted peanuts.

    RKC- that’s what i did and all the salt blew off when they got dry. I have tried your method, dodo and Annabelle. Somehow it’s just not the same- there is a kindof salty taste, but I guess i could try again. I’m thinking it’s like trying to salt hot air popped corn. i’m going to have to add a bit of oil. I thought if i added a little coconut oil and stored them in the fridge, the salt crystals would harden on there with the oil. Maybe someone has tried that?

    Hmmm, yeah, I agree with your thinking… why dont you try really massaging the soaked almonds with a mixture of salt and coconut oil…

    hi Izhpt…i sometimes use a very diluted date paste as “glue” for the salt…i really don’t taste the sweetness of the dates:)

    Would it help to finely grind the salt into a powder? I put a powderd salt herb seasoning on zucc. slices to dry and they came out way to salty. Have to “brush” it off to eat.

    I am going to try soaking nuts in water with some salt and see if that does anything. I have been thinking about this for a while but have been cutting down on my nut intake lately. Next week for sure. lol.

    So they are dehydrating now..I ended up with 1T olive oil for probably 3 C of nuts and 3 bams of sea salt. We’ll see. I want them nice and crispy so I’m guessing they’ll be in there 24 hours. Something happens to nama when i dehydrate it. The flavor REALLY intensifies and it makes me sick to even smell it. I don’t really use it.

    So I’ve been doing this almost daily now with different nuts. I soak them, rinse them WELL and toss them with 1T of olive oil and 3 healthy pinches of sea salt for each 2 cups or more of nuts. It allows me to monitor my nut intake (I’ve been known to eat 1/2 a raw pie). They don’t crash me like other nut recipes and i don’t overeat them. I feel like I’m having roasted nuts in the fall!!!
