Roasting Seeds in a Microwave

Raw Sunflower Seeds
Raw sunflower seeds can be roasted practically and easily in a microwave. Cover seeds with salted water, using 1/4 to 1/2 cup of salt per two quarts of water. Soak seeds in the salt solution overnight. Make sure, by tossing, that all the seeds are wet. Transfer the wet seeds onto a large flat dish. Set the microwave 1 minute cooking time. When cooking stops, toss the seeds, add another minute. Repeat the last steps as many times as required until the seeds are crispy and tasty. Depending on the quantity, the entire roasting process should not take more than 5 minutes.
