Seeds sunflower - pumpkin

This might be a stupid question, but when recipe calls for soaked soaked sunflower or pumpkin, shells and all or just the seed?

    Aloha and welcome to Gone Raw. Any time a recipe calls for soaking nuts or seeds it is without the shell. Here are a couple of good websites for information on soaking seeds and nuts:

    For a recipe, you'd need just the seeds. But for sunflower greens, you need the shell on. I'm not sure about sprouting the pumpkin- might not be ok to eat those greens(?). But as "soaks" they are both fine (and what you'd want for a recipe) shell off.

    Ahhh, seems we hit it at the same time, emtpdmom! lol.

  • Mahalo,

    That what I thought, time for work.

    Shell off for both. Same goes for sprouting them.

    "Same goes for sprouting them."

    Unless, as I stated before, you want to sprout sunflower *greens*. You need the shell on, for those. If you are unfamiliar with what I am talking about, you can see them (and read about them) here:
