Over the weekend I tried cracked wheat berries for the first time! They are also sometimes called "Hard Red Berries." I purchased some in the bulk food bins at EarthFare, but I also plan to look for them at Whole Foods and at Kroger (hoping that Bob's Red Mill product line may carry them).
1 cup dried crack wheat berries
3 1/2 cups water
- Put wheat berries in a medium sauce pan and pour in 3 1/2 cups water .
- Soak overnight, over 7-8 hours.
- Then bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes - 1 hour.
Enjoy stirred into oatmeal and yogurt, as a cold salad with veggies, or just to chew plain. One tablespoon is approximately 20 calories.
