    A very nice flavor and very easy to make. Mine cook for 9 hours but the millet was still hard, quinoa was very creamy. My crockpot only has low or high and I used the low. Put your spices in a spice or tea bag as they tend to fall apart and picking out the bits is tedious. Leftovers are good too! - 1/21/10

    I don't have teabags so I tied up the spices in a small square of muslin and some cooking string. Worked great. - 11/28/10
