Hmmm...that article says raw, unsalted which makes sense. I guess I can just clean them off, let them dry out really well and freeze them.

Some instructions that I have found online indicate that it is fine to use bird seed, the kind that says black oil sunflower seeds...but I was unsure about how those might be processed.

I am currently up to my elbows in sunflower seeds. I am absolutely amazed at the amount of food that they produce for the space.

After removing the black seeds, I am soaking them in salt water and then toasting them in the oven for 30 minutes. When they cool, I am going to throw them in freezer bags and store them in the freezer.

I've watched a few videos on YouTube about making sunflower sprouts. I think that I will try this at some point down the road. Is there anything that I should or should not be doing to my seeds at this point in order to make sprouting possible later?

Thanks!
