- 10. Toasting Nuts
- Toasting nuts brings the oils closer to the surface, bringing out the flavor. This is especially useful in low fat cooking, where you want to use less nuts, since they tend to be extremely high in fat. Toasting also makes removing the skins off of nuts easier. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In an ungreased cookie sheet, spread the nuts in a single layer and let bake for 6 minutes. Remove from the oven. If you want to remove the skins from nuts, wrap the toasted nuts in a kitchen towel. Let the nuts steam for 5 minutes. Roll the nuts around (while still in towel) until skins rub off.
