DIRECTIONS

  • Soak the wheat berries overnight in water to cover. Drain the next morning.
  • Combine the wheat berries with 3 cups of fresh water; bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat, cover and simmer 1 hour or until the skins split. Drain.
  • In the same pot heat the milk (or milk substitute) with the honey, cinnamon or piece of cinnamon stick and nutmeg. Gently heat until the spices start to become fragrant.
  • Remove pan from the burner and stir in the vanilla extract and orange flower water. Note: if you used a piece of whole cinnamon stick remove it now.
  • Stir in the cooked wheat berries and heat through if necessary. Or, as we did: spoon a serving of the wheat berries into a bowl and pour milk all around.
  • Garnish the wheat berries with diced apple, powdered sugar or a drizzle of honey and the almonds.
