Toasted Corn Nuts

Yields6 Servings

Adult help needed.

 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
1

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.

2

Preheat the oven to 400˚F.

3

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.

4

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.

5

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.
