Quick Answers

 

 

How do you dry sunflower seeds?


Sunflower seeds ripen on the flower and are usually left there to dry. If birds are harvesting your seeds, wrap cheese-cloth around each flower until the seeds are dried. The seeds may also be shaken off the flower when mature, then dried in the sun for several days, or in a food dehydrator at 100 degrees F. When dry, seeds can be roasted in a shallow pan at 300 degrees F for 10-15 minutes.
