DIRECTIONS

  • Heat a cast-iron skillet over low heat. Add the flaxseed and dry roast it in the skillet, stirring, for about 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  • Place the toasted flaxseed in a spice grinder and grind to a powder. Sift through a medium-mesh sieve into a bowl.
  • Add the hot water to the flaxseed, stir and let set for about 10-20 minutes to allow solids to settle out.
  • Strain into a pitcher, add honey and chill before serving.
  • Note:
  • Toasted, unhulled barley and sunflower seeds are sometimes added to telba for additional flavor.
