    Soaking them in piranha infested water works even better for that...

    If 'Grok' was living near water, I think it's save to assume that he did soak his nuts most of the time.

    Let's all go soak our nuts. Should clarify our thinking.

    Ha! But she did have to remove them from the shell in order to eat them. She couldn't just pop a handful into her mouth. (Mmm, a mouthful of nuts.) And nut flour? Who has time for that?

    Other way around, mate! Lots o' hot water. Used to be that they recommended soaking in hot baths daily as a birth control method.

    On a more serious note, I have wondered all about this "ancestral" style grains and whatnot, with the soaking and sprouting. My guess is that it would happen in wetter seasons when roofs leak, but probably not all that often.

    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.
