Picking lentils

    This is for Fran Watts, who was wondering why one "picks over" lentils.
    Lentils and other dried beans often (at least in the U.S) contain
    clumps of dirt, small rocks masquerading as legumes, and other
    extraneous stuff (wheat husks?).  The dirt will wash out, and the
    husks may provide extra roughage, but the rocks often prevail when they
    meet with teeth!
