Additional Details:
The grain is ground into meal by the women on hollowed out stones There are three grinding stones to a set. First the woman places the grain on the coarsest stone, and with another stone, roughly cylindrical, grinds away at the grain, until It is all ground up. The coarse meal is gathered into a basket, with the aid of a rough brush, and placed on the center or medium stone, and reground. Finally it is ground on the finest stone, and is then almost as fine as our flour.
