    Yields 1 cup

    Place the warm water and hemp nuts in a blender and puree for at least 3 minutes.  Drain through a fine seive.  Reserve the milk and discard the solids.  Place the hemp milk, salt, and cumin in a saucepan and bring to a simmer.  As the milk simmers it will begin to curd.  Allow the process to continue until most liquid has evaporated.  Strain through a fine seive.
