Sprouted Wheat Berries (2)

Lorraine Glazar, Tucson CSA

Wheat berries make a sweet crunchy sprout—great on salads and in sandwiches!

¼ cup wheat berries
Sprouting Jar: A jar with cheesecloth or fine netting secured with a rubber band over the mouth of the jar

Rinse the wheat berries as directed (in Newsletter # 90). Soak overnight. The next day, drain well and place in sprouting jar. Put in a dark cupboard or other location where the berries will not be exposed to light. Rinse and drain thoroughly 2-3 times per day (important!). When most of the berries have a sprout, move the jar into the light so that they can green up, continuing to rinse several times a day. After a day or two in the sunlight they will be ready to eat.
