Default Seed Saving

I let my cups of seeds dry to the point of being stuck to the bottom of the cups - bone dry. I soaked them till they came free, rinsed in a strainer and am drying them now. Will they be good? They are way darker than my normal saved seeds.

Reminds me of some I was given some years ago, they were just a dry conglomerate. I washed them and dried them, and they're still viable now.

I think I would try saving again just in case they aren't viable.
