Toasted Corn Nuts

Yields6 Servings

 2 cups white corn kernels, dried (find them at your local health-food store)
 4 tbsp corn oil
 1 tbsp seasoning of choice, such as kosher salt, garlic salt or popcorn seasoning

Soak the dried corn in a container with 8 cups of water for 12 to 18 hours. When finished soaking, drain the water and use paper towels to dry the kernels.


Preheat the oven to 400˚F.


Place a single layer of corn kernels on a roasting pan, add oil and toss until thoroughly coated. Bake the kernels in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring every 5 to 6 minutes, or until golden brown.


Using a spatula, place the corn on paper towels to absorb the excess oil. While still oily, select your desired seasoning and sprinkle it over the kernels, turning them to season completely.


At first, the kernels may be somewhat chewy from the absorbed oil. Dry the corn in a cool, dry area for a day or so.
