Video: Activate and Dehydrate ALMONDS

Hi everyone! I love this time of the year in London, it’s just so social and fun with all sorts of fabulous partys: cooperate Christmas parties, boozy Christmas lunches, Christmas hat and jumper gatherings down the pub, school-parent Christmas drink parties, the list goes on.
I have also taken on a lot more work then I would normally do  and I’m trying to finish my book on fermentation. So I’m slightly overstretched but Its all good. Nuts is a great snack when you are rushing from one thing to the other. Full of vitamin E, Calcium, chill-out Magnesium and Potassium.
To really get the most out of these little darlings I first activate them by immersing them in filtered water for 6 to 12 hours and then I dehydrate them so that the nutrients are more easily absorbed.
I don’t have a dehydrator so I put my oven on 50C and open the oven door slightly and let the almonds dry out for 12 to 24 hours. Boom. Much cheaper activated almonds from the health store.

How to make Dehydrated Crisps in an ordinary oven

20140412194029(1)

My absolutely favourite naughty food is gorgeous salty crispy crisps.
But do you know that if you dehydrate thinly sliced raw potato you end up with healthy and super delicious crisps that are as good as the ones you get in a bag!
And you don’t need a dehydrator-oven to make them, an ordinary oven and 12 hours is all you need.
I hope you like it!
