No Wheat Grinder?

Sometimes we don't realize that there are plenty of ways to use our wheat even if we don't have a wheat grinder of mill. Here are just a few ways to think about using wheat and remember just do a couple at a time, too much wheat at one time can cause digestion problems:( *Add wheat to soups and stews in the crockpot (stretches and fills tummies) *Wheat Berries - add some wheat berries to a pot of boiling water, bring back to boil,after about 45 min. drain off water, put in a container in the fridge, tastes great added on top of ice cream, yogurt, bananas, can use in place of nuts. *Grow wheat grass - very easy to do *Popped wheat - use your wheat berries and cook in a skillet with a little oil, you cover with lid and shake, in about 4-5 min it will be lightly toasted and adding a little cinnamon sugar after drained on paper towel, these are a great snack! *Cracked wheat - put wheat kernels into a coffee grinder, pulse a few times, has a resemblance of steel cut oats, cooks quicker and can be used as a filler in ground beef or again in soups or stews.
NO, I have not fallen off the face of the earth, I promise! I have been so so busy! I have now been able to quit my fulltime day job and be at home again and doing licensed home childcare. I am loving it! I forgot really how much I missed being at home! So I will be getting back on track helping you learn how to use your long term food storage, freezer cooking, dehydrating, and anything else that deals with food storage and building and using it!
