Sunflowers

Sunflowers in French are called ‘tournesol’, which is much more expressive than the English ‘sunflowers’, or the Latin ‘Helianthus’, as it reminds us of the almost magical way that these large golden flower heads turn to follow the sun all day. In the south of France where they are grown as a crop for their oil, you can see whole fields of them keep facing the sun as the earth turns. Sunflower oil is rich in polyunsaturated fat, which is thought to help keep down cholesterol levels in the blood.
