I cook this in a black and decker steamer (2.5 cups wheat berries and fill the bowl with water to the top). I don't add salt or broth re: sodium. I turn on the steamer for 75 minutes and it cooks like rice, comes out perfectly, not mushy. I freeze in 1 - 2 cup vaccum packs for up to a year. I use in everything I cook, soups, stew, stirfries, breakfast cereal with oatmeal, and sprinkled on salads. Great way to get a whole grain with fiber and nutrition on a daily basis.
