Sunflowerless Sunflower

As I said before, my kitchen was bustling yesterday. My brother in law has made it his mission to "live off the land" this fall even though we all have jobs and no farm and live in the city. (yes I consider Cheyenne the "city" of Wyoming even though it only has 50 thousand people) Our families were farmers, so it's natural for us to want to kind of see what it was like.
Regardless of living in the city, we all grown gardens. We all pool our food most of the time. And this year... he has started canning among other things.

One of the other things is to make sunflower seeds from GINORMOUS sunflowers. I mean they were huge and he grew them. So did we, but mine got taken out with the rubbish of the garden a couple weeks ago. To our surprise they were purple inside. The seeds were a deep dark purple as well.

I'll be cooking them today....I'll let you know how they turn out!
