comment Bracha for Quinoa
is something given a 'mezonos' bracha due to mesora or due to a definition of what items get a 'mezonos' bracha applied to it? If mesora, then quinoa would be ha-adama.

comment What does “the Talmud” mean in the Talmud?
Did you go to college? If not, this is kind of hard to explain. But in colleges there were sylabus/class notes that were taken by student(s) in the past that became unofficial course text. I'm not talking about test questions and answers, just lecture notes and expansions on those. It wouldn't surprise me if back then there were "notes" and there were "Notes!"
