   1                    Shell nuts and rinse with hot water.
                        Helps to remove dust and residual oil
                        that seems to cause allergic reactions in
                        some people.
   2                    Spread nuts onto trays in a single layer.
   3                    Dry at 90* to 100* for approximately 24
                        to 48 hours or until brittle. If
                        choosing to use nuts with the shells -- drying time will be
                        about 10 hours. To
                        test -- open a shelled nut.
                        The nutmeat should be tender but not
                        shriveled.
   4                    Allow nuts to cool. Store in glass jars
                        or plastic bags. Because nuts
                        contain so much oil -- there is a tendency
                        for the oils to become rancid, so I
                        choose to freeze nuts to guarantee
                        freshness.
   5                    When ready to use the nuts -- allow the jar to
                        come to room temperature
                        first.
                        The frozen nuts will immediately draw
                        moisture from the environment which
                        leads
                        to possible molding or faster rancidity.
                        So use them up fast..
