Soaking and dehydrating of pecans is an option, not a requirement; you can use raw nuts. If you choose to soak nuts, complete this process in bulk, so you have a good amount of nuts in your pantry for recipes and snacks, then your recipe process is quick and easy. Soak pecans 4-6 hours. Rinse and drain. Dehydrate for 12–24 hours or until dry. Dehydration time will depend on how many nuts are in the dehydrator at one time.
