Yesterday Cohen and I removed the many, many seeds from the largest of our giant sunflowers, all the while discussing seeds, flowers and cycles. He was fascinated and only stopped his work in order to crack open the seed cases and eat their contents. With more sunflowers in the garden it's a process we shall be repeating again soon.
I intend to save some seeds for planting, roast some for eating, store some for baking and try this cinnamon vanilla sunflower butter recipe too.
Do you have any other suggestions?
