Basic Wheat Berries

To cook wheat berries:

Combine 2 cups wheat berries, 6 cups water and 1 tsp salt in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to boil, lower the heat, and simmer covered until plump and chewy (and a few of the berries have split open), about an hour or so. The berries will stay al dente, and the only way to be sure they are done is to taste a few. Drain and set aside. Will keep in fridge for several days or freeze. Makes about 3 cups cooked wheatberries.

Wheat berries can be used as a substitute in many recipes that call for brown rice or pasta
