"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 recipe #291222, but could only find Sharon's how-to recipe here. Thanks for making this available, Sharon123!"
"Very easy and tasty! I had never had wheat sprouts before and I was surprised at how sweet they are. Thanks Sharon! Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC tag."
"Another winning recipe and informative "How to..." from Sharon 123...my sprouts turned out LOVELY (wonderfully pure sweetness)...I put them in and on everything (really i MEAN EVERYTHING :) ) eat them by the handful and throw them in all our salads , cereals, snacks and such:)...I also now use this recipe as the first step in making Rejuvelac (which I have just incorporated into part of my juice - head lifestyle)...this recipe is now a part of daily living habits in my house ...thanks again Sharon :) :) :) LOVE IT!!!"
"This is just too easy! Fresh, tasty and inexpensive sprouts whenever you want. I had some trouble finding wheat berries until I found out that they're called wheat kernels where I live."
