View Full Version : sprouting sunflower seeds but the skins r cumbersome
03-17-2009, 10:18 PM
I've soaked sunflower seeds before to make it alive n aid digestion. I found that the skins came right off and was floating in the bowl that I used. It was a bit annoying to remove the floating skins. Is there a better way to soak sunflower seeds then to soak it in a bowl of water?
excited to go raw

Sorry I can't help you with your question...I'm new, but do you dehydrate them after you soak them, I don't care for the taste of raw sunflower seeds or cashews. As far as your question regarding floating skins...are you able to just skim them off the top with a mesh spoon?

Matters not to me.....I look at it as Fiber, just pour off the water and take what's left. You can always skim it off with a strainer.

I just throw the skins in with the recipe. No need to remove.

Are you talking about the thick black skins. I do not think that they are edible.
