#354: Amaranth harvest

Does anyone out there know how to process amaranth?
We cut, dried and pulled it off the stems:
Now what?
Tobias tried running it through a screen:
The little black dots are the seed,
a lot of them are still stuck in the husks.
He then tried floating the husks
 and letting the seed sink.
Leaving us with half seed, half detritus.
The Aztecs lived on this stuff,
there must be an easier way.
Any ideas?
