Recipe: Frumenty (Cracked-Wheat Porridge)

Here's a recipe to use some of those wheat berries you have stored!

Made with cracked wheat, frumenty is a porridge boiled in milk. It's been made since at least the Medieval times, but some people think it's been made since prehistoric days. It is obviously a delicious, hearty breakfast.

Ingredients:
1 cup whole wheat berries, cracked
4 cups water
1 cup milk (rehydrated powdered works)
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon raisins
1 tablespoon dried apricots or peaches

Directions:
Add the water to a large pot and bring to boil. Add the cracked wheat. Simmer until the wheat is cooked and soft enough to eat. Store in a covered bowl in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, add milk and honey. Warm the porridge in a medium-sized pot for a few minutes, stirring, and add dried fruit. Serve warm.
