<< Since I started looking seriously at lentil recipes, I have been 
 intrigued with the instruction "rinse and pick over".
 What exactly am I picking them over for? I assume it is to remove 
 something, but I have never found anything that needed removing.
I've always been told to pick over dried beans because sometimes small stones
get mixed in with them. I assume the same is true for lentils, too.
