Wheat Berries in Milk and Honey


This recipe is inspired by my favorite stove top rice pudding recipe. But I've been experimenting with eating healthy whole grains, especially wheat berries. This is a delicious combination of wheat berries, milk, honey, and fresh blueberries.

Ingredients:

1 cup soft white wheat berries

2 cups of milk

1/4 cup honey

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon (or to taste)

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (or to taste)

1/2 cup blueberries (or other berries you like)


First, soak the wheat berries overnight in water. This helps them to soften and cook quickly. In the morning, drain the wheat berries and put them in a pot with two cups of milk.


Cook the wheat berries and milk over medium low heat, stirring regularly (though not constantly) for one hour or until the wheat berries have absorbed most of the milk.


Stir in the honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg, then add the blueberries.


Finally, you can eat the delicious wheat berries in milk and honey!

*You can usually find wheat berries in the grain bins at stores like Whole Foods or Central Market.
