Sunflower heads
[Return to Topics]

My dad grew a bunch of sunflowers this year in his garden. This morning when I went to have coffee with my Mama he had left me some tomatoes, okra, and sunflower heads. They have been drying for a while, so they are ready. How do I fix them to eat? Thanks :)

I asked the same question last year, had some mammoth SF heads. Hang them upside down to dry thoroughly, if you don't let them dry completely, they will steam when you roast them and the seeds will be rubbery. Same thing if you soak them in brine. I didn't bother with salt. Every recipe I tried didn't turn out. We ate ours unsalted. You can get a powdered salt if you really want them salty, to sprinkle on before or after roasting, but they're really just as good without.
