I have about a hundred pounds of hard winter wheat stored up from my baking days. I was excited to see recipes using soaked/sprouted wheat in Alissa's book but I've read (can't remember if it was in the book or online somewhere) to use hard wheat for wheat grass and SOFT wheat for recipes. Is it possible to use hard wheat for recipes? Maybe needs to soak/sprout longer? Oh please tell me I don't have to go out and buy MORE wheat :eek:

Since you already have it, give it a shot and see how it is. I'm pretty sure I use hard wheat. Wouldn't swear to it but... *shrugs* You've got it; soak it, sprout it, taste it.

You could also make wheatgrass, if you wanted to.

Well, I'm going to put some on to soak tonight, I guess we'll see in a few days if it works :rolleyes: . Just hoping someone else has already conducted this experiment LOL

I've used my wheat grass berries for recipes, no probs.
maybe soft wheat would have tasted better.....but I don't know!

Sprout it! I've used hard wheat before and it sprouted fine. (In fact, it was my ONLY success at sprouting, to date.)

Soaking now :D Hope it turns out well, I'm going to make Alissa's blueberry bread and muffins :)
