"A friend brought over a 50# bag of large sunflower seeds. I decided to try to salt and dry some,give out to friends and kids.If you have an opportunity to purchase Sigco Sun Products brand,South Dakota. They are twice as large as the ones you purchase in the store.This is so easy!"

"Haven't tried this yet, so cannot rate it - - but wanted to add a note, that if making large amounts of this, be sure to put the excess in the freezer as nutmeats will turn stale."
"I grew sunflowers this year, but had just over a cup of seeds, so I reduced this recipe. I let mine brine for 2 1/2 days, and they are VERY lightly salted. (Maybe because I used Kosher sea salt?) They only took an hour to roast, though (they sat in the oven all day before I turned it on), and they taste great, just not as salty as I would have liked. I'll try it again next year with different salt."
"I had about 5 lbs of unsalted sunflower seeds in the freezer that were for our parrots but they've now decided they don't like them anymore. So I used this recipe to salt and roast some of them! Very easy, and turned out pretty good. I only had about 1 1/2 days to let them brine, so mine are lightly salted. But still a very tasty snack. Thanks for posting this. "
