Best Way to Sprout Nuts

I have yet to sprout my almonds, and am looking for any tips on sprouting and dehydrating them. Can you sprout walnut halves?

    Raw almonds aren't actually raw they are either either steamed if they are organic or fumigated if conventional. So you can soak and dehydrate them but they won't sprout as other raw nuts will. Soaking does remove the anti-nutrients and makes them more digestible. i've soaked almonds in water, probiotic beverage, tea and marinades.

    There is a company in Canada that sells raw almonds.

    The steaming process, if done properly, doesn't last long enough to kill the germ, and it should still sprout.
