what is teff????????????

yes, teff is a grain/seed, VERY tiny. for cooked, i'd soak then cook like a porridge. i guess i'll just try to soak and/or sprout them and blend with some fruit/nut milk. i'll let you know.
also, you can make a baked flatbread called injiri (sp?) that is traditional in africa, i think. wonder how this could be adapted to a dehydrator. anyone out there know what i'm talking about?

It's a seed from East Africa not sure if you can spout it or not. Did the package say raw on it when you purchase it?

i got it through gold mine natural foods. the package doesn't say raw, but i'd be surprised if it's not. it is organic so probably not irradiated.
i'm just going to try to sprout them if i can figure out the best way. the seeds are so tiny, i think the'll come through even the finest screen of my sprout jars. any suggestions?

Several layers of cheesecloth, maybe. I have a package of teff, also haven't used it since going raw, so I'm interested in your experiment.
It's even smaller than flaxseed.
Maybe I'll just add it to my green smoothies without sprouting. I'll study on that a while, but will check back to see how your sprouting goes.

Tombi was going to try to make injera in the dehydrator.
