Something else to make with Wheat Berries : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

From the Optimum Health Institue of San Diego. Here are directions to make Rejuvelac, a pre-digested food that is easily assimilated by the body. Rich in B vitamins plus Vitamins E and K. One cup of "soft" winter wheat berries. Soak berries in 3 cups of water for 24 hours. Allow to sprout for 36 hours, rinsing 2 or 3 times during sprouting. Blend in a blender with 3 or 4 cups of water, and pour mixture into a gallon jar and let sit at room temperature for 24 to 36 hours without a top on the container. Strain the liquid and refrigerate. It should have a tart taste, a little like lemonade. If it separates or tastes "better" discard. To make a sourdough bread. Take the wheat mixture that is left over from the straining and mix with several cups of flour, salt, sugar, and 1 tablespoon of baking powder. Mix ingrediants together as in making bread. Put into a greased pan, enclose in a zip lock bag and let stand for 24 hrs. Remove from plastic bag, apply oil to top of bread and bake for 45 minutes at 350 degree. When your spam and powdered potatoes run out and your tired of grinding, now you know something else you can make with those wheat berries. Just like the little train, I think I can.

Rejuvelac, without a doubt must be extremely healthy, because it is positively one of most foul things i have ever had the misfortune to taste. Pleasant, 'lemony' taste is how i hear it described. Well, maybe it is an acquired taste, like Vegemite. You should try it before you plan to do it for the long haul. I made several different types, as i thought maybe the batch was bad, but they all tasted the same. Tart, yes, but pretty much the same type of taste as acid reflux/bile. Yuckkkk!

As part of my preparations for y2k I've started to bake bread. This is the best baked bread my family has ever eaten, of the various recepies I've tried it is by for the easiest way for me to make bread. Thanks.

A dumb question from someone who never baked with anything but "Robinhood" flour... What, may I ask are Wheat Berries?

Baking with sprouted grains/seeds/nuts etc so delicious!
Lots of sprouting threads, but don't have time to find & link them.
Gotta wait for that search engine.

use Sprouts to replace loss of access to fresh veggies
