    Recipe found on No soak required, so no need to plan ahead!!! Worked perfectly for me. They state that you can keep the cooked wheat berries in the fridge for 2 days or you can freeze them for up to one month.

      I made a batch of this to refrigerate for use as hot cereal. It took almost 90 minutes for the grains to become tender, yet still chewy (but if I were going to make a salad, what I perceived as toughness after 1hr might've been just fine). Since I didn't add bouillon, I did double the salt to make up some of the difference; I prefer salt in hot cereal over sugar, so it needed it. I definitely will store it in the fridge longer than 2 days, I think it should be safe for at least five. But overall, this method worked pretty well, and it yielded about a quart of high-fiber cereal that I can microwave in seconds. Thanks, January Bride!
