Place pecans and almonds in separate bowls. Fill each bowl with enough hot water to cover nuts. Let nuts soak in water 5 minutes; rinse and drain. Spread nuts out on double thickness of paper toweling to dry, about 30 minutes.

Heat oven to 250F.

Spread pecans and almonds, either combined or separately, evenly in two large baking pans. Bake nuts until lightly browned, about 1 hour. Every 15 minutes stir nuts, then sprinkle with 2 teaspoons cold water and salt. Serve warm; sprinkle with salt to taste.
