Shelled Hemp Seeds, often called Hearts, are the germ of the hemp seed.
Uses: Families use shelled hemp seeds (hearts) just about anywhere they use an almond, sesame seed, pine nut, or just about any other nut or seed.
Flavor: Mild, nutty flavor that might best be described as a cross between a pine nut and a sesame seed.
