We’ve had so many people happy that we’re now offering peanut free and nut free sunflower seeds but many people would like them roasted and salted. Since we’re only offering the sunflower seeds as a raw, unsalted option right now, I looked up easy ways to do your own roasting.
I found a great link on ehow (they even have a video if you need it) on how to prepare raw sunflower seeds for roasting. This is slightly different than toasting which I’ve done by just popping the seeds in a 350 degree oven for about 6-10 minutes until browned. This recipe requires an overnight soak in salted water, although you can remove the salt as you wish. Once roasted, the seeds can stay in a tight container for months or can be frozen and used as you need. Enjoy.
