Homemade bone broth tastes rich and satisfying, and it’s surprisingly easy to simmer overnight or while you do other things.

The total baking time will depend on the moisture level and the size of the nut. I find it easiest to buy nuts, soak them all, and then toast or crisp them all right away, so they’re always ready for snacks, nut butters, and breakfasts (and crisping or toasting many batches of nuts at once conserves energy). Tip: Taste a nut to see if they’re crispy all the way through.
