We have some big sunflowers which have gone to seed - I'd like to try making "pipas" before the birds get them. Can anyone tell me how?

I believe you dry the heads out, then remove the seeds and fry them with salt.

Thanks for that, so you have to dry the heads first - I wonder do you do that while the plant is still in the ground or cut the heads off and hang them up somewhere?

You can also experiment wth other flavourings as an alternative to salt!

You can dry fry the seeds if you want to, just dont leave unattended as they burn quickly!
