Recipe Tuesday!

This recipe idea is taken from There are tons of great tips for emergency preparedness, deals, recipes and of course food storage!

Wheat is intimidating to me. I bought 50 lbs at the cannery for $6 each and now I wonder what am I going to do with it! It stores for over 30 years, but I would like to incorporate it into our meals now. The other problem is that you need a grinder to make it into flour. Those are pretty pricey if you can't find one to borrow.So I was excited to run across this idea:

Put 2 c. of wheat in a crock pot with 4 c. water. Turn on medium heat for 2-3 hours, or until wheat is tender and soft. Watch to make sure the crock pot does not run out of water. Add a little extra water if the wheat absorbs the water more quickly than is expected.

When wheat is soft and tender, serve with milk and honey for cereal or add to several of your recipes. Wheat is great to help many recipes stretch. Add a 1/2 c. to your meatloaf, taco meat, meatballs, etc. and you will NEVER know it is there. Not only will the wheat help your recipes stretch but it will add extra nutrients to your meals as well. Keep a tupperware full of cooked wheat in your fridge and you will be surprised at how many recipes you can throw it into.
