Sunflowers — like potatoes, tomatoes and corn, sunflowers were brought to Europe from America. At first it was grown as an ornamental plant, sometimes boiled baskets were used. Oddly enough, as a crop for oil, sunflower migrated back to America from Russia. The sunflower was grown in the east and south of North America more than 2,000 years ago, eating seeds in whole, crushed, raw and fried, made from them, and added to other dishes. In the temple of the Aztecs Templo Major (in Tenochtitlan), 10 wild sunflower seeds were found, which were used as an offering to the gods. The stem juice was used to heal wounds, the infusion of the leaves was used to treat the kidneys and lungs.
