- 4c soaked wheatberries
- 1/2 c to 1c minced vegies (optional)
- 2 T seasoning(caraway seed, poppy seed, sesame seed, garlic ect..) (optional)
- 1 T honey (optional)
Buy only organic whole grain(usually wheat) berries(two cups for one loaf), rinse, and put in a glass jar, ceramic bowl, or pot.
Fill with clean water(twice the volume of the berries), place a lid(or screen or netting) with holes in it for aereation, and let soak overnight(at least eight hours).
Drain in the morning and rinse at least twice a day for 3 to 4 days, shaking the berries to prevent matting and spoiling.
Allow the sprout hairs to grow at least the length of the berries and/or to be sweet to the taste before grinding.
Grind into a paste(a juicer or food processor will do), knead and shape into round and generally flat loaves and put on Teflex "bake" in dehydrator (70-90 deg) until firm(12-24 hrs).
Let cool and store in sealed plastic bags. Refrigerate or freeze only if intended to keep for more than three to four days.
Cut with a wet and serrated knife, and enjoy! Finally, a pure and delicious bread with no salt or chemicals in it.
You can add honey, seeds, or chopped nuts or fruit when making your bread, or eat them side by side, or you can just eat the bread alone as it has a sweet and satisfying taste all its own.
