Soaking Walnuts – Are you nuts?

I had never heard the idea of freezing your nuts to extend shelf life.  Nuts once out of the shell do not have a very long shelf life – think weeks before they start to become rancid.  So now when I go to the big box store and buy nuts, in the freeze they go.

But what about soaking nuts?  Soaking makes them more beneficial to the body and increases the nutrition.  I have included two links below that discuss the topic in more detail.

So each week or so, I take a cupful from the freezer, soak them, dry them and replenish my stock.  Maybe this isn’t so nuts!
