The wheat berries were rinsed and put into clean water this morning. I tasted a few wheat berries and now they are softening up. I also fed the ground wheat berry starter last evening.
I was thinking about trying to grow some wheatgrass to juice, but read the wheat berries need to be hard winter wheat. Since I don’t know what type of winter wheat I have, I won’t try growing wheatgrass until I am sure I have the right kind. I also read there are many other things that can be made from wheat berries like: made into cereal if boiled, used in homemade bread (chopped and blended in blender), stir in with rice, added to cookies, muffins, pancakes, or waffles, add to casseroles, stuffed peppers, meatloaf, meatballs, pasta sauce, mushroom and sprout sauce, added to sandwich spreads like tuna, avocado, chicken, and egg salad, sprinkled on yogurt, and sprinkled into stir-fry. I also read where wheat berries can be toasted to make a snack or used in other ways. I think the wheat berries need to be soaked first before they are roasted. Wheat berries that have been soaked can also be toasted in a pan.
This recipe is one of many for using wheat berries.

There are so many variables that go into making a PIZZA. The hydration of the dough, flour, yeast and many more.. Amounts of any kind of yeast in a pizza can make a big difference. Most recipes posted on the web, use too much yeast in their recipes. What I have found out so far, is either bulk fermenting the dough or cold fermenting the dough will give a better flavor in the crust. I am still experimenting to find different flavors in the crust of pies. In my opinion pizza is all about the best flavor you can achieve in a crust. I still am on the journey about flavors in the crust. Even differences in temperatures in you home or times of the year can influence how much yeast to use. If you want a pizza to develop flavors in the crust, there are many ways to go about achieving this.
