Soaking Nuts

I’m not finding perfect consensus here, and I’m going to assume that the amount of salt to add and how long to soak is slightly arbitrary. From The Nourishing Gourmet:

Raw Pecans, Walnuts, or Almonds: Soak 4 cups walnuts with 2 tsp salt for 7 hours or overnight. Dehydrate 12-24 hours, until crisp.
