What is Hard Wheat Kernel?

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.
