Super Baby Food Mamas - Question about Super Porridge

I have been making Super Porridge for quite some time now (my dd is 16 months), and I just realized - on every package of beans and lentils it says to rinse first before cooking. Obviously I can't do that if I'm grinding them up. So, what is it that's on these beans and lentils that I'm supposed to be rinsing off? Anyone else worry about that? Should I be using only organic beans and lentils?

Re: Super Baby Food Mamas - Question about Super Porridge

I would wash them if I was going to cook them right away, but I usually make a large batch, so I want to make sure it's dry for storage. Maybe I should rinse them and lay them out to dry, then grind them?

Re: Super Baby Food Mamas - Question about Super Porridge

In the book it also tells about how if they float to throw them away because the have gone bad... so I fill up a pot, throw out the floaters, and then let them dry on a drying rack that has a towel on it. I do it in small batches - which works fine for me because I only have a small little food processor that holds a 12 oz at most.
