Curly Dock is a very fibrous grain. It has so much fiber that it is best to mix one part Curly Dock grains to five parts other grains.
Positive-Impact Harvesting Technique: This tends to be a very common grain wherever it grows. Before picking this one, check to see if there is “abundance or isolation” & pick sporadically, leaving behind the majority to the plant to ensure its renewed growth.
1.) Remove the grains from the stem:
2.) Grind the grains into a mitate (mortar & pestol):
3.) Winnow the grains to remove the chaff.
4.) Store the grains in a dry area & use in a ratio of no more than one to five when using this as a grain because it is so fibrous.
