Does anyone know how to toast wheatberries?  I've had them on salad and they
are very good and crisp.

The nutritional info is available from the USDA database, a interface to
which is available on the fatfree

The uses for the berries are many.  The can be cracked and put into cracked
wheat bread.  The can be ground and made into bread or muffins or pancakes.

The wheat berries can be sprouted, eaten in salad, or added to bread.

The whole berries can cooked into soups and stews, and even as a morning
hot cereal.  Laurel's kitchen says to use 3 cups water to 1 cup wheat
berries, and let simmer for 2 hours.

Most recipies that call for whole barley can use wheat instead.  The
cooking time, however, wil l have to be doubled
