We put equal parts sugar and honey into a pan set over medium high heat. We added raw hulled sunflower seeds and salt. We cooked the seeds in the sugars, stirring constantly. The honey and sugar started to color first. The seeds followed closely behind. When the seeds were golden brown we removed them from the pan and put them on a parchment paper lined sheet pan. When the seeds were cool they were crunchy and slightly sandy, nutty and totally addictive.
