Trying out chia seed. I was going to collect some from the chia plants on campus. Then I realized they probably won't be ready until I am done with class. So I just bought some.Amazing how mucilaginous it gets. What is pictured is 1 tablespoon of dry seed. It soaked up about 1/8 cup of water!It didn't really bring much to the table, flavor-wise. But it did function as a nice thickener. It has its health benefits, and I am curious to see if it make my breakfast more "long-lasting".
