Toastiest, perfectly salted, Sunflower Seeds

With God’s helping hand, we recently walked the 500 miles from St. Jean Pied de Port, France to Santiago de Compostela, Spain. I bought a bag of Facundo Extra Grandes Pipas (or Sunflower Seeds as we know them here in the States)and was hooked.

I sometimes couldn’t find this brand to buy along the way, and didn’t enjoy the other brands in comparison, either they were too salty, or not fresh enough. So when I found a Tienda that carried this brand I would by 4 or 5 packs at a time, even though keeping pack weight as light as possible was so crucial.

I just finished my last pack now that we are home and went online to find more. But all the sources available are sold out. I will have to go back to my regular brand, which in no way compares to these Extra Grandes.

By-the-way, this Pilgrimage was an amazing undertaking. And enjoying the sunflower seeds as I walked was very insignificant in the whole scheme of things. If you would like to know more, read “Hiking the Camino, 500 miles with Jesus” by Fr. Dave.
