    Sharon123's Note:

    Wheat berries, also called soft wheat, are found in the health food stores and in some grocery stores. This is a good basic recipe for srpouting. When sprouted, they have a wonderful sweet taste. The sprouts should get 1/3"- 3/4" long. These are great in salads, bread, as a snack, and in stir fry. Enjoy! When I cant' find cheesecloth, I cut up a washcloth into 4 squares. One square works great! Cook time is sprouting time. Adapted from the cookbook Fresh!

      This is one of the most fun recipes I have made in ages. It made a HUGE amount of sprouts that went great on a sammich and in a salad. The best part is it opened loads of options for sprouting all kinds of seeds, can't wait to try it some more. I used a piece of nylon screen that I cut to fit the jar lid and I can wash and reuse as needed. It was cool to watch them grow before my eyes!

      I gave away a sprouter Ithat sat in a cupboard for years so I used your old fashion method and worked like a charm. I did forget to rinse twice a day but it still worked and I was surprised how sweet they were. We used them in the sprouted bread recipe on this site.

      Thank goodness this was uncomplicated, since it was my first time sprouting! I looked for sprouted wheat berries at my natural foods store in order to make Sprouted Wheat Berry Bread, but could only find Sharon's how-to recipe here. Thanks for making this available, Sharon123!
