Wheat berries are whole wheat kernels, and can be purchased at Middle Eastern, kosher and health food stores.
1 cup whole wheat berries (whole wheat kernels), rinsed
1/2 cup sugar or honey, or to taste
1 cup warm milk
1 tablespoon cornstarch
Handful of raisins
1 teaspoon roasted peanuts, unsalted, chopped
1 teaspoon slivered almonds
1 teaspoon walnuts, chopped
1 teaspoon dried coconut
1. Eight hours or the night before serving, place whole grain in a large thermos and cover with boiling water. The next morning, the wheat will be puffed and tender.
