Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C).
On rimmed baking tray, spread out sunflower seeds in a single layer. Toast in oven, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and light brown, about 10 minutes.
While seeds are warm, transfer to food processor fitted with steel blade attachment. Add syrup, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, and salt.

Transfer to airtight jar and keep refrigerated for up to 1 month.
