Recipes for wheat?greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
So we collect 150 lbs of grain per person. Now what? I can't imagine what to do with it. Will you please continue this thread by adding recipes for making breads, cereals, or other items such as granola bars, etc.? What kinds of grain should we buy? What other ingrediants do we need. How does one keep yeast usable for a long period? How about it folks...
Please tell me?

There's a good cookbook called "Wheat for Man."
You can soak wheat for two days, and then cook it and use it like pasta.
You can sprout wheat, then puree it and heat it for a vitamin-rich cereal.
You can grow it to the height of 5 or 6 inches and then juice the grass - this is one of the most nutritious foods on Earth.
It's not just for breakfast anymore...

Geri Guidetti has published and sells a good pamphlet called "Living Well on Wheat". It contains recipes, nutrition info, storage info, etc.
Check out http://www.arkinstitute.com to order it and other books on growing your own food. Also non-hybrid seeds.
I have no financial association with these products. Except as a consumer.

Other grains --- try corn (popcorn is especially good), rolled oats, barley. It's really best if you don't buy feed grain. Get food grain.
Other ingredients --- hah! All spices that are normally used for cooking, honey (sweetener), baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar, cooking oils, dried milk, dried butter,
Other --- several good cookbooks
Yeast --- long storage life as long as you keep it in metal foil package. We refrigerate ours.......it will last a year after the power goes out as long as we don't open the foil.

I came upon this bread link by accident earlier, gives a FAQ on breadmaking, looked pretty thorough.

See James Talmadge Stevens book "Making the Best of Basics" for a chapter on Wheat, one on Triticale, and one on white flour.

He also has Don't Get Caught With Your Pantry Down" by Mr Stevens.
All I know about him is I got his flyer as I bought the book.
