Hemp has been cultivated for thousands of years for hundreds of uses. Easy to grow, the stalks of this rugged, naturally pest-resistant plant are easily separated into coarse fibers that can be pressed into paper, woven into textiles, or twisted to make cordage and rope. Other parts of the plant are used to make organic insulation, natural building materials, biodegradable plastics, animal feed and even bio-fuel. The oil contained in the seeds will oxide and solidify when exposed to air much as linseed oil does. This solidified material can then be used to make soap, candles, or even cosmetics and a host of other products, too.
The culinary uses of hemp typically use either the seeds or the oil that can be pressed from them. Once sold exclusively in natural foods stores, Hemp Seeds are super-nutritious and a well balanced source of proteins, vitamins, anti-oxidants like omega-3 and -6 fatty acids and fiber.
Botanically speaking, Hemp "Seeds" are actually the fruits of hemp plants, but they are most commonly treated like the tree nuts they closely resemble. Each seed has a slightly dry hull that encloses the dense, nut-like inner fruit. Hemp Seeds may be eaten with their hulls which are a delicious source of fiber. Alternatively the hulls may be removed (in which case the inner nuts are typically called "Hemp Hearts").
These Toasted Hemp Seeds have been lightly roasted (as evidenced by the rich brown color of their hulls) to enhance their natural nutty flavor. They are delicious blended into smoothies, substituting for crushed nuts in baked goods, or ground and mixed into everything from energy bars, baked goods or vegetarian burgers.
