Here is my newest discovery! These shelled and roasted sunflower seeds have been seen at markets for a few years in Turkey. And they are still not very common, you cannot find them easily at every market. This might be the biggest reason why they are pricy, or maybe because it’s not easy to shell (is that the right word?) them.
I went to market to buy shelled pumpkin seeds, but I couldn’t find it at the biggest super market in our city, so these were my only choice. I bought them to use in a homemade bread. I’m planning to make and post it soon. Before bread, I’ve used them in salads several times so far. And it was great in salads! My husband says it is like a surprise when you feel a sunflower seed in your mouth among herbs. It seems I will use them often. So I may need to buy another package for my bread.
Do you know any other ways to use roasted and shelled sunflower seeds?
