Grass basket seiving

This is the fifth step in my processing amaranth.  After skimming off the floating chaff from the water, what I had left was essentially the heavier seed and water.  To not lose any of the amaranth’s tiny seeds, I used a tightly woven grass basket.  I transferred the water and seeds to a smaller clay pot as my grass basket was small.  In the picture, you can see the tiny black seeds that remain in the basket as the water flows through.
