I have grown Amaranth successfully in upstate New York, USA, getting a very high yield per plant. However, I have not found it easy to dehull. I cut the stalks and hung in a shed to dry, as the fall is rainy here, and the heads are quite full. After drying I rubbed them against a strainer to separate the seeds from the head but most of the seed
still covered with spiky hulls that are painful to rub. In other words, they are still not ready for winnowing. Any suggestions as to how to remove these hulls? Would Quinoa be easier to hull?
