  • over-soaking nuts

    If you are sprouting for 4-5 days… that’s okay! It’s the soaking that I think would be too much. I thought that one should be sprouting after about 24-48 hours of soaking. I didn’t think you could sprout seeds while they are still swimming in water. If you can… I’m going to have to try that.

  • over-soaking nuts

    If they smell funny… then rinse them until the smell goes away. Rinse the container they were in too. If the smell doesn’t go away, throw them out; they are no good.

    Typically you germinate/soak nuts for up to 48 hours (seeds/grains for up to 24hrs) changing the water 2-4 times a day. You are removing enzyme inhibitors like phytic and tannin acid when you soak. If you’re sprouting, the process is slightly different. But, the longer you soak (up to the hours mentioned), the more nutrients you will get since you are removing the inhibitors and the nut/seed will begin to grow.

  • Favorite tv shows!!!

    Have to add my two cents... TV? Who has time for TV?

  • Teflex vs. Parchment paper

    I often see recipes that use Teflex sheets. I have only used parchment paper and I was wondering if I would get the same results. Parchment paper tends to dehydrate the food faster without flipping the food. Will I be missing out on “something” if I do not use Teflex sheets?
