People are weirded out by this video of this sunflower head being eaten like corn on the c

On August 11, Mansfield-based Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company shared an approximately one-minute tutorial on how to grill and eat a sunflower head. According to the company, the first step is — unsurprisingly — picking a sunflower. Once the seeds have formed and the shells are soft, the flowers should then be removed. Afterwards, the head should be coated with oil before being placed face down on a grill over medium heat. Once the head is covered and cooked for five minutes, it can be covered in the tomatoes and chopped basil. The company’s video ends with a woman eating the sunflower head as if it were corn on the cob — an unusual sight for even the most passionate foodie. The clip has since received 1.3 million views and more than 3,000 comments, many from those who couldn’t fathom the sight of a cooked sunflower head. “I love sunflower seeds but I never even thought about eating them like that,” one person wrote
