Harvesting and frying sunflower seeds

It is easy and the kids will love helping with this one. 10689949_580995965360146_687533397821141657_n

Hang to dry for about two weeks.
Rub your thumb over the seeds and they will just fall out.

I got eight cups of seeds from four plants.


Rinse thoroughly, I pick out the plump ones and roast them in a frying pan on medium with Kosher salt until they give you a popping sound.


Yummy afternoon snack.
Don’t forget to save some for your next year sunflowers and the birds for the winter.
