    Was just reading Mark's posts about seeds, and how soaking and roasting at low temps is preferable in order to break down the toxins.

    My question is regarding pumpkin seeds -- do you hull them before soaking and roasting?

    Everything in moderation, including moderation.

    Yes! You can actually buy them already hulled (which I would highly recommend you do unless you have a lot of free time). Then I soak in some salt and cayenne and dehydrate for a day or so on about 100 deg. Nourishing Traditions is a good resource for preparing nuts/seeds in this way...

    I don't. I always soak and roast them in-shell and also eat the shell.


    Is that abnormal?

    Eating lots but still hungry? Eat more fat. Mid-day sluggishness? Eat more fat. Feeling depressed or irritable? Eat more fat. People think you've developed an eating disorder? Eat more fat... in front of them.

    If you leave the shell, how will the water reach the actual seeds then?

    no idea, but they come out yummy.

    I&#39;m not saying it&#39;s "right." Just saying that&#39;s how I&#39;ve done it all my life.
