Buy Whole Wheat Berries [HOT]

I really like these wheat berries. I've combined them with other freshly milled flours to make the lightest-tasting sourdough whole wheat pan loaf I've ever made (in 10+years) and tried them out by themselves in the BSM pancake recipe where they had a lovely sweet, mild wheat flavor. I will purchase these again.

I find Danko to have an assertive but pleasant flavor. My favorite rye bread is dense and full of cracked wheat/rye, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, molasses, etc. and Danko works really well in that mix.

In my quest to buy fewer ingredients and do more with them, wheat berries have earned their spot within my limited shelf space. Cooked, they have a nutty flavor and chewy bite that add a satisfying heartiness to whatever dish you enhance with them. Ground up, they render superb flour. I buy various types of these whole grains: hard red wheat berries, soft white wheat berries, emmer berries and spelt berries. Spelt and emmer are types of farro, an ancient wheat grain. I also cook lots of rye berries, a cereal grain related to wheat.

According to the USDA, for an adult eating a 2,000 calorie diet, 47 grams (about cup) of emmer berries contain the daily allowances of the various nutrients below. (This appears to apply to dried, which would measure roughly cup cooked.)

I store my wheat berries in the cloth produce bags I fill at the bulk bins. We go through these bags in two to three months. If you eat yours more slowly, you may prefer to store them in air-tight glass jars.

Stir cooked wheat berries into a pot of vegetarian chili to add meatless meatiness. Even omnivores will wolf it down. Mix cooked wheat berries into nutloaf for a chewy texture. Or stuff peppers with a mixture of wheat berries, vegetables, beans and cheese.

The dough below contains 40 percent freshly milled whole wheat flour (from hard red wheat berries), 20 percent freshly milled rye flour, 20 percent store-bought whole wheat flour (Five Roses, eh) and 20 percent store-bought, all-purpose flour (King Arthur). They fermented quickly (3.5 hours as opposed to the usual 4.5 but I should have stopped it at 3). During poofing, they rose more than usual.

Yes! Wheat berries are the entire edible part of wheat kernels: the germ, the bran and the endosperm. There is no outer shell and you can eat the whole thing! Because the whole wheat kernel is left, none of its nutrients are stripped away. Wheat berries are filled with fiber, protein and iron. Cook them for your breakfast cereal, toss them into your stews or add them to your salads.

Wheat berries can be used in everything from chilis to soups, but two of our favorite ways to enjoy them are in salads and baked goods. Here are some fun wheat berry recipes to start experimenting with.

This Spring Rhubarb, Herb and Wheat Berry Salad is vibrant in color and simple to throw together. Ingredients include things like Hard Red Spring Wheat Berries, slivered almonds, rhubarb and strawberries. As a final touch, this can be topped with crumbled cheese and a bit of honey for sweetness.

We love how Kate combines wheat berries with chickpeas, carrots, feta and arugula with her homemade lemony dressing. Bring this dish to a springtime potluck to introduce your friends to the wonder of the wheat berry!

After you remove them from the oven, use a pizza cutter to easily cut them into bars. Allow the bars to cook, package them separately, place them in the fridge and eat as desired! These are a fun way to introduce kids to wheat berries, too.

From Easter pies to chickpea salads, experimenting with wheat berries in your breakfasts, lunches, snacks and dinners is the perfect way to get more protein, fiber and vitamins in your diet. Plus, with its nutty and robust taste, the flavor will surprise and excite you as you start to explore it!

Now for the whole grains. Where can I get small amounts (1lb - 2lbs) of good quality wheat berries and other grains I can mill. We are a small family so I don't want to store in bulk. Also I figured it would be good to try small amounts in the beginning to figure out what we like the taste of. I prefer variety to volume.. Any advice? Online or locally in CA bay area would be great.

Many full-service grocery stores will carry the full line, or at least most of, the Bob's Red Mill products, which include whole berry grains. Here in the Midwest, Kroger and Market District/Giant Eagle carry whole berries from BRM, including red wheat, Kamut, and millet.

If Petaluma is close to you, this company sells whole berry grains from their retail location, but I don't know how small of a quantity they sell. They sell the whole line of flours and whole-berry grains, which includes several varieties of wheat (red winter, red spring, white), rye, durum, einkorn, emmer, spelt, and buckwheat. Most of those grains come in both an organic and a non-organic form.

Rainbow grocery in SF has Central Mills whole wheat berries available flour bulk purchase. When you find the type you like, you can order from Central Mills directly, online. They offer some of the best varieties of organic flours. Enjoy home milling.

Each has its own flavor. White whole wheat tastes very much like white flour. Red Wheat has a grassy taste, similar to what you find in some store bought whole wheat. I haven't used Kamut very much , but to me is is like white whole wheat in flavor, but a little sweeter.

My favorite bread book on whole grain bread is Peter Reinhart's "Whole Grain Breads." It's not specifically about home-milled grains, but it is good for both store-bought and home-milled "mostly-whole-wheat" and "100% whole wheat."

There are slight tweaks needed between store-bought whole wheat flour, and home-milled whole wheat flour, usually more or less hydration, and less oil, and extra soak time if your home-milled flour is not milled as fine as store-bought flour.

My favorite taste so far is a combo of mostly Hard White Spring Wheat, and about 1/4th Hard Red (winter or spring) wheat. I usually use up to 10% store-bought AP flour or Bread Flour to help improve the crumb.

But the thing with non-wheat grains or wheat-like grains that are not normally for bread making, (Kamut, durum, spelt, rye) is that if you make them the majority of the dough, you get poorer/denser crumb. Don't get me wrong, They can be good, and many people make them, but when used as the majority grain in a dough, they don't come out as floofy-poofy as regular red or white wheat that usually goes into breads. That's why most (not all) recipes mix them with AP or bread flour, or whole-grain red or whole-grain white wheat.

If you have not already bought a home grain mill, I would suggest learning/experimenting with store-bought whole wheat (both red and white), at first. Then, when you get experience, start adding and experimenting with Bob's Red Mill flours (also in most large grocery stores) of whole (dark) rye, whole spelt, and whole Kamut. That is, start including 10% to 20% of those "specialty flours" into recipes that you already learned, and see how you like the taste.

When first learning to bake whole grain bread, starting out the learning process with home-milled grain, adds another dimension of complexity that might over-whelm the novice baker. But that's just my opinion. Your access to local bakers who know whole-grain baking, or know home-milled grain baking, and who can help and teach you in person can make a difference. 041b061a72
