Hi everyone...Ive been checking out some recipes I want to make from Alissa's book & alot of them call for wheatberries. I dont know what these are:confused:
Does anyone know if they are called something different in the Uk?
I looked on Alissa's site to see if she sells them but didnt see any.

Wheatberries are the whole kernal of wheat before any processing is done to them..
In order you would have:
Cracked wheat (broken into 1/4's or so)
Coarse ground flour (texture of corn meal)
Medium ground flour (texture of fine polenta)
Medium fine grind flour (most all-purpose flours)
Finely ground flour (cake flour)
These are general approximations as each manufacturer is a little different..

You can buy hard winter wheat berries or soft winter wheat berries...
