Cousin Mary Jane Hemp Hearts are a delicate nutty tasting food. The seed has been hulled, providing a softer consistency. They can be added to any meal or eaten right from the bag as a snack. Put them on salads, pasta, fruit, prepared vegetables or yogurt; add them to soup instead of crackers. Blend ‘m up in your smoothie and they won’t have a chalky taste either. They are an outstanding source of Omegas, Protein, magnesium, Vitamins and Minerals. C.M.J.’s Hemp Hearts are great! Refrigeration recommended (not required) to maintain ultimate freshness
