Roasting seeds

Raw, mature seeds may be prepared at home by covering unshelled seeds with
salted water (2quarts of water to 1/4 to 2 cup salt). Bring to a boil and
simmer 2 hours, or soak in the salt solution overnight. Drain and dry on
absorbent paper.
Put sunflower seeds in a shallow pan in a 300-degree F oven for 30 to 40
minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Take seeds out of the
oven and add 1 teaspoon of melted butter or margarine, or cooking oil per 1
cup of seeds if they are to be eaten immediately. Stir to coat. Put on an
absorbent towel. Salt to taste.
