      Hi, Monica!! I’m so happy you’re trying them! You’re gonna love them, I can pretty much guarantee! :o)
      You have a very good question, and there is no specific answer. They just sit in the water for a couple minutes. It’s just to make sure they are good and wet, not for any other purpose so don’t worry about it too much. If you love them, please share the recipe for us! Happy football day!
