I have never shelled Pumpkin seeds, I just season them and roast them in the oven and just eat them like they come out of the pumpkin. As for Sunflower seeds kids just pop them into their mouths and bite on them and spit out the shell and eat the seed, I have to shell the seeds from the hull before going into my mouth.

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. " Thomas Jefferson

I have not found an easy way to do so. My method consists of spreading paper towels onto my table, and manually peeling them one by one, just like when you crack pecans or nuts. It's time consuming. I have heard that there are machines that do this for you, but I have not been able to find one.

Once again, I have a wonderful harvest of winter squashes and sunflowers. Every year, I think how wonderful it would be to sprinkle some seeds on a salad or a homemade loaf of bread. They're so nutritious! But, so far, I have not figured out how to shell them out. Anybody know a practical method for shelling pumpkin and sunflower seeds?
