Until I learned the correct way to do it.
I was so happy. Some of you may be saying "what in the world is that!"
It's a dried sunflower. You see, Maureen grows sunflowers almost every year in her garden and this year she was kind enough to dry one and give it to me.
Let them sit for at least 8 hours. You can leave them in there longer if you like but it will take at least 8 hours for them to start soaking up the salt water all the way through.
I left mine in for about 20 hours. I stirred them around a few times to make sure they all got in the water good.
At this point, I sprinkled a little bit more salt on them. Yes, I love salt!
Roast them at 300 degrees for 30 mins. Move them around 1/2 way through. You don't want them to burn. Check to see if they are done. I put mine back for 10 more minutes as the inside seeds were still a little soft.
