First time I made this I cut the recipe in half, thinking my family wouldn't be interested. I was trying to incorporate more wheat into our diet. I wished I had made the whole thing. I think it's yummy. I've adapted this from a recipe in "Marlene's Magic with Food Storage". Unsure of yield. Update: Recently made this and my 2 wheat salads as part of a booth at a preparedness fair. They were all a hit. The men especially liked this wheat casserole as it is similar to chili. The women generally liked the salads better - figures!

I tagged this in Spring '08 PAC. It makes a lot, so that I reduced the meat (used ground tukety) a bit (would reduce the berries next time instead) bcz I didn't have a pan big enough to simmer it all in. Left out the olives and green peppers, so I think I would add more seasonings next time. It had a strong taste of tomato sauce. Maybe I'll add the seasonings I use for my spaghetti sauce too. I love the chewiness of the berries, but the kids don't, so, like I said, will cut the berries down so they're not so prominent. Thanks!
