Cracked Wheat Berries!

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

  1. Put wheat berries in a medium sauce pan and pour in 3 1/2 cups water .
  2. Soak overnight, over 7-8 hours.
  3. 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.
