I was surprised to discover that sunflower seeds that are out of the shell are still alive and will sprout. Just put 1/2 cup seeds in a container with a cup or two of water and let soak several hours or overnight. Then drain and rinse them. You can use them at this point or let them grow in your jar or bowl for a few days, rinsing them once a day.
