Preparation of the Ground Seeds
When you buy the ground seeds, they must be heated, as the taste is very bitter. Heat the seeds in a large skillet on low heat, stirring often, as they will burn. Keep tasting the seeds until they have a bland taste. After the seeds are bland, place them in a coffee grinder and grind. Traditionally, the seeds are mixed with honey and eaten that way.
