More on Wheat...

In the last 10 months since I posted about the different uses of wheat that I have discovered.  I have played with the recipe.  From one cup of  wheat berries I get about 4 cups cooked.  So I am able to make 4 small loaves of bread, one pan of cinnamon rolls, AND a double batch ot the tortilla recipe listed below all from that one cup of uncooked wheat berries. 

I just started playing with sprouting wheat so we will see what comes of that.  Hopefully it won't take me 10 months to get you up to speed with that. 


Whole wheat tortillas

1/2 cup cooked wheat berries
1/2 cup milk 

Blend above in Blender until mushy.  Set aside

1 ¾ cup flour
½ tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
¼ cup shortening
½ cup very hot water

Combine dry ingredients in seperate bowl then cut in shortening  add wheat berry mixture and hot water and combine with a fork then kneading with hands until dough comes together.  Cover and set aside for about 15 minutes.  Divide into about 8 balls and roll out as smooth as possible and cook on an ungreased skillet
