"Winnow" in context

Winnowing is a traditional process used to separate the edible parts of grain from the chaff. It dates back centuries to a time when grain was commonly used in breads and other staples. The process of winnowing begins with gathering the grain in a basket or sack and then throwing it up in the air in front of a gentle breeze. The lighter chaff is blown away in the breeze, leaving the heavier grain to fall to the ground. This process can be done by hand or with a mechanical fan. Winnowing is often used in combination with other techniques to make sure that only the best quality grain is used.
