Cooked Wheat Berries

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/cooked_wheat_berries.html

From EatingWell:  March/April 2007

Contrary to popular belief, wheat berries do not require an overnight soak before cooking. Simply boil them for 1 hour to soften the kernels, which will produce their characteristically chewy texture.

About 4 1/2 cups | Active Time: 5 minutes | Total Time: 1 1/4 hours

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Sort through wheat berries carefully, discarding any stones. Rinse well under cool running water. Place in a large heavy saucepan. Add water and salt.
  2. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer gently for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Drain and rinse. To serve hot, use immediately. Otherwise, follow the make-ahead instructions.
