1 cup wheat berries, soaked overnight and drained
Put the wheat berries in a pot with plenty of water to cover by a few inches ( I usually use 2 1/2-3 cups). Bring to a boil, then lower the heat, cover the pot, and simmer until they are tender, 1 to 2 hours. Add 1/2 tsp salt once they have started to soften. Make about 4 cups.
