Also known as wheat grain, wheat groat or wheat berry.
Hard wheat kernels are the whole wheat grains that have not been rolled, polished or pre-cooked and are produced from hard wheat.
They are brown and nearly ovoid in shape with a robust, nut-like flavour that goes
well with hearty foods.
They can be used in place of rice as a main dish or served as a side dish, or added to soups and stews, and yeast bread doughs or other baked goods..
How to Cook Wheat Kernels
Simmer 1 part wheat kernel with two parts water for 1-2 hours or until desired tenderness. If soaked overnight the cooking time can be reduced to 30-45 minutes.
