With its mellow, nutty flavor and chewy texture, SHILOH FARMS Hard Red Winter Wheat is a versatile all-purpose grain well-suited for use in both sweet and savory dishes. A variety noted for its high protein and gluten content, it is frequently ground into flour for use in breads and other yeast-risen baked goods.
One of the oldest and most widely cultivated cereal crops in the world, wheat is the leading souce of plant-based protein in the human diet. In addition to being an excellent source of protein, whole grain wheat berries are loaded with vital nutrients including fiber, B Vitamins, and a laundry list of essential minerals (including manganese, phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, and iron)!
To Cook: Sort and rinse. Add 1 part grain to 3 parts water and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 1-1½ hours, or until grain is tender. Drain excess water and serve. Soaking the grain overnight will shorten the cooking time. Yields about 2½ cups cooked grain.
