Salted sunflower seeds


If sunflower seeds are salted, so that a member of the household is known to suck on the shells for their flavor, then the shells are not muktzeh. However, the person eating the seeds must know that, for without that knowledge he will consider the shells to be useless, and so they will become muktzeh.

[I am not sure what would happen if the person eating was a minor. - MT]

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 5:20:7)

Have a great day,
