New Foodie Trend — Whole Sunflower Heads

Foodies have been left divided by a new recipe that suggests grilling whole sunflower heads and eating them like corn on the cob. The recipe was shared on Facebook by the Baker Creek Heirloom Seed company based in Mansfield, Missouri. To create the dish, the sunflower must be picked when the seeds have formed but still have soft shells. All the petals are then removed and the head coated in oil from a jar of sun-dried tomatoes before being placed face down on a hot grill. It’s then covered and left to cook for five minutes before being coated in sun-dried tomato and basil. Once it’s finished, you can easily pick it up with your hands and eat it just like corn on the cob. Some who have tried it say it’s got a nutty taste, but still tender like corn, while others have thumbed their nose at the unusual dish. One even suggested rubbing it with garlic instead of sun-dried tomatoes. The only way to know if it’s something you would enjoy is to try it yourself.
