Wheat Berries and Oat Groats

Goody goody grain grain!

If you've never used wheat berries or oat groats, you may feel a bit uninspired when you have them in your share. If you have experience, and have found that you like these little nuggets, share your favorite uses or recipes with us on one of our Social Media platforms linked in the newsletter.

Here's how I like to use them--and honestly, even though the flavor is quite different, I use them interchangeably:

Rinse in cool water, cover by one inch of clean water in a two-to four-quart pot. Boil in water or broth until soft, 25-30 minutes. Drain and rinse. Store refrigerated for up to a week.

- Add to cooked oatmeal
- Sprinkle over salads
-Add to bread dough
-Add to soups
-Sprinkle over baked potatoes or sweet potatoes along with all the toppings
-Use as base for warm-salad side dish

Satisfying and yummy!
