Sunflower Seeds? Answered

I have grown a large number of giant Russian sunflowers. How do I crack the seeds to release the kernels?


You can use a rolling pin to crack the seeds, then winnow, sift, or float the hulls away from the kernels. Personally, I would give the whole seeds away as gardening gifts and go buy a few pounds of pre-shelled ones from the grocery store.
