    The best crust ever! It almost tastes like sugar cookies. I used it to make small tartlets filled with raspberry jam (from one of your other recipes, I must confess) and topped them with coconut cream. Everyone loved them! :) This is the first time I just ‘whipped up’ a rawfood dessert (I almost did anyway☺). It is a small step, but still… I am used to feeling comfortable in the kitchen and just make something tasty with what I’ve got in the fridge. Not quite there yet with rawfood but I am slowly getting closer. :)

    Dearest Amie-Sue, i notice i have built some resistance to soaking drying nuts and seeds when they are tiny or have no skins especially macademias. it takes a long time to prepare all the steps and then to find a large storage place. i tend to soak larger amount otherwise small quantities takes up even more time and patience. I am so grateful for healthier and delicious choices, now it is time that i pray for greater patience in all the healthy steps with bigger smiles!! :)
    Your recipes help me as every recipe looks gorgeous and sounds delicious.
    Many thanks and blessings with your beautiful work.

      I know it can be a hassle to do but your body will thank you in the end. I too do large batches at a time, it saves a lot of time. I have been doing it for so many years that it is just an automatic thing that I do without thought. It always takes a little time to create habits and trust me, this one will come to you! I hope that you have a blessed and happy day, amie sue :)

          Working on ourselves is always going to be a work in progress. I am trying to learn to embrace this thought and make the best of each step I take. :) If we don’t…even the smallest of tasks in life can become dreadful and what kind of life is that!? :)

          • afsaneh says:

            So very true Amie-Sue. How beautiful that something so simple can teach us something so very profound.I am learning and embracing the moments of this thought. The macademias did their job… he he…:)))

      I had 2 kilos ~4 pounds macadamias and definitely worth trying to soak them for the first time. They are a bit larger, even crunchier, the taste is vibrant and sweet, shinier in color and they smell even fresher. There was some oil release during the soaking time. I rinsed them, used two cups of soaked ones for making cheese base (macademia pesto cheese) and the rest is in dehydrator now. I wonder how it tastes when they come out from the dehydrator. I am sure the cheese will be nice…
      I had used unsoaked macademia and dried cranberries for chocolate bars. They were also nice but next time I will use soaked and dried ones to taste the difference.
      Many thanks and Blessings,

        Good morning Afsaneh,

        So nice to hear from you and so glad that you shared this. It will be an encouragement to others who read the comments. :) Isn’t it amazing the difference in taste and texture when you go through the soaking and drying process. If anyone every doubts it, they really need to keep some unsoaked ones aside, then do a small batch and compare the two. Big difference!

        And yes, with macs, some oils are leaches out during the process. They are one of the fattest nuts. Have a wonderful day my friend. Blessings, amie sue
