    Could be wrong, though.

        Ahh.. I knew it was something like that but since i dont have any nuts to soak, I dident pay that much attention
        Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

          On a more serious note, Grok did not have access to almond. The sweet almonds had to be selected and cultivated before they became safe to eat c. 3000–2000 BC. Wild almonds are toxic and Grok who'd eat a few would have died, even if he could get over bitter taste. I can see soaking seeds as a normal practice to remove bitterness for other nuts.

            Certainly acorns have been soaked traditionally to remove bitterness.

              Yaeh, it seems like a lot of food is only eatable because of cultivation and selection these days.

              Oh nuts! Maybe I should just eat marzipan :P
