Have you ever tried some halva? It’s delicious! You know, you can make it yourself and it actually doesn’t require much in the way of skill. It’s all about frying and blending sunflower seeds, mixing them with powdered sugar and butter, flavoring with vanilla extract and then forgetting about them in the refrigerator for 3 hours. The actual time spent in the kitchen: about 15 minutes.

  1. need more information,
    Are these the whole seeds with hull? or just the kernels? are they raw? or roasted?
    when adding to the pan are they
    fried in added oil? or just heated and toasted.
    thanks.

    • Hi, rhino! We use the raw kernels and we simply heat/fry them for 2-3 minutes. No added oil. Good luck! 🎈
