As I mentioned before, my husband is on the GAPS diet. And the thing about GAPS cooking is that everything requires preparation. EVERYTHING. Even seemingly whole foods like raw nuts. Usually I need to soak the nuts overnight in salt water, drain in the morning, and then spend all day dehydrating them in the oven on low. But, I now have a solar oven!
I still soaked the almonds overnight in water with a teaspoon of salt, but in the morning I drained them and placed them on a parchment-lined tray and popped them into the solar oven. 2 hours of sunshine later we had crunchy delicious nuts that even my husband could eat!
Rating: crunchy success! This works well with any nuts, though if you do cachews, only soak them for a few hours, as they can get slimy.
