What are wheatberries?Wheatberries are the whole grain form of wheat - the whole complete grain before it has undergone any processing. They're a high-fiber whole grain that can be used much like any other whole grain.
How to prepare wheat berries?Because they are a bit tough, whole grain wheat berries do take a long time to cook. To prepare wheatberries, cover them with plenty of water and simmer in a covered pot for about one hour, or until soft. Pair cooked wheat berries with a vegetable stir-fry or a sauce, or use it like you would use rice. For a quicker cooking time, wheat berries can be pre-soaked overnight, or even just for an hour or two.
