- 1 thermos
- 1 cup whole wheat berries
- 2 cups boiling water
First preheat the thermos by filling it with your hottest tap water. Place the lid on it loosely and allow it to sit while you do the rest of the work. Meanwhile bring 2-cups of water to a boil. When the water boils, dump the tap water out of the thermos. Immediately pour the boiling water into the thermos. Pour the wheat berries into the thermos along with the boiling water. Try to work quickly so the water doesn’t lose too much of it’s heat. Screw the lid tightly onto the thermos. Now allow the wheat to cook in the thermos for about 8 hours, or overnight.
When you open the thermos you will have lovely freshly cooked wheat, the perfect temperature for eating. You may need to drain off a little of the water if it hasn’t all been absorbed. Serve anywhere you would rice, or stir some into a little yogurt with a bit of brown sugar. Cooked wheat is also nice for breakfast with a few dates and milk.
If desired, this recipe is easily doubled or trippled for larger thermoses.
