    Thumbs up First Time eating wheat berries

    Ok so I got a deal from Emergency Essentials that had a grinder, some dough enhancer, a wheat dvd, and something else.

    I made a wheat berry and apple/cherry concentrate dish.

    I tea kettle of water brought to a boil.
    1 cup of wheat
    put wheat in a thermos
    add boiling water from tea kettle
    let sit over night
    add your choice a fruit concentrate
    and serve.

    The berries are a little chewy but nothing that made me say I can't eat this. With the apple/cherry concentrate as flavor it was a pretty good dish really. Now to get my wife to try after I have eaten it for a few days

    If you boil them for a bit before sticking in the thermos they will get slightly less chewy. Key word= slightly.

    About how long should I boil them?

    I had the same idea first time I cooked some - not bad, kinda chewy, but OK. I try to add pre-cooked wheat now to any rice recipe to add fiber and accustom this ol' bod to the higher fiber content. I figure I can up the proportion as I go, as too much at once makes things rather, ahem...'active' at the other end. The taste is nice, though, kind of health-foodish-brown-riceish.
