This is what I did . . . . The nuts are not soaked in acidic water but rather salted water.
Spicy Trail Mix
This is a wonderful high-protein, mineral-rich snack and easy to take along. Soaking and roasting the nuts and seeds makes them more digestible. Although it will take an entire day to make this, there is almost no work involved and you don’t have to be around to monitor it either.
1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
3/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 heaping cup raw almonds
1 heaping cup raw walnuts or pecans
1 tablespoon sea salt
chili powder or paprika
Place seeds, nuts, and salt in medium-size bowl. Stir to distribute salt. Fill bowl with water to about an inch above nut mixture. Let sit 7 hours to 12 hours. Drain in colander. Preheat oven to 150 degrees. Spread nuts and seeds in even layer on baking sheet. Sprinkle chili powder or paprika evenly over mixture. Roast 8 to 12 hours. Keep in covered jar.
Yield: 4 cups
Fruity Trail Mix: Add 2 cups dried fruit to cooked mixture.
