diane-picI am a native-born Texan and have spent my adult life cooking and creating wholesome, natural meals and snacks for my loved ones. Nuts, seeds and dried fruit of all kind have always been included in my daily eating routine. My sister was on a trip to India and noticed the women soaking their nuts in water. We were fascinated by their process and loved the finish product – their nuts tasted nothing like raw or roasted nuts we eat here in the US.

I began to test out different methods of soaking and dehydrating raw nuts, similar to the methods of the women in India, while studying the nutritional properties. I perfected my recipe and began gifting and giving nuts to those in my community every chance I could get.

In 2008, my nuts literally sprouted into a homegrown business. Turns out, I’m not the only one who thinks they’re irresistible!
