I accidentally bought whole flax seeds instead of ground flax seeds. What can I do to get them usable?

You can grind them yourself in the blender or Nutribullet.

If you have a spice or coffee grinder that works well also. You can also toast them in a dry skillet--watch them carefully-sprinkle them on salads etc lots of goodness in those little

Throw them in a pestle and mortar and stomp them then keep them in a container in your fridge.
