Anyone know how to eat bundleflower seed. Lemme tell you popping them into your mouth and chewing isn't one! Our first year bundleflowers are producing these beautiful tiny little seeds and I'll be planting them all around the orchard to help the soil. But at some point I'll have enough to eat and can't find any articles on how to do that? I guess grinding into a flour perhaps or grinding like flax seed raw?

Thanks Eric!! Who are these people and can I work with them? No need to duplicate efforts. Is it a tannin bitter bad taste like with acorns or some other bad taste I wonder? I have a couple more bundles that are ready to pick probably tomorrow. I will probably only be able to do one experiment this year because I have so few seeds. But I"m from the south and have made some pretty bad stuff taste good with enough chili powder, garlic and onions
P.S. you know I love your book, but I've got two more people hooked on it too!

I'd just give the Land Institute a call. I've found them friendly and pretty easy to get a hold of.
