Oh yeah, be prepared to give it a mega-dose of elbow grease.

That's only for people on the medieval diet.

Yeah, they are very easy to find and you can get marble ones that are smooth or concrete/basalt ones that are rough. It'll be a slow and painful process, let me tell ya!

They are sold all over America. I've seen them in kitchen supply stores, Mexican markets, Asian markets, etc.

The blades are shaped differently in a food processor. The mini's blades are flat and very low and can catch the seeds.

so you use your mini-food processor specifically at times for grinding seeds? i just dont see how that would do it but a blender would not?

Black & Decker makes an inexpensive stand-alone mini processor that my MIL used for years.

You can go medieval with a mortar and pestle. Grinders and blenders might just give you a powder.

I use my blender, but a food processor might help if you are making really small batches (or a coffee grinder?).

Here's my favorite recipe swap out the vegetable oil for olive oil: http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/fullplate/2009/11/faking-it--pumpkin-seed-puree.html

I was wondering if the pumpkin seeds had to be shelled/dehulled?

I use a mini-food processor that came as an attachment to my stick blender. I tried my full-sized food processor, but that didn't work very well.
