View Full Version : Hard or Soft Wheat Berries?
02-17-2006, 08:28 PM
I am hoping to make the banana bread and the whole wheat crackers from Alissa's book but the only wheat berry the store had was hard wheat berry. I was wondering if they would work for these recipes. If not, what is a good substitute and what can I use these hard wheat berries for?

Sorry to bug you all... Could someone please help. I did a search under the banana but didn't find an answer...
I was reading in the sprouting section of Living on Live Food that the hard wheat berries were mainly for wheat grass and the soft were for the breads and crackers... the store closest to me doesn't carry soft so I bought the hard and I am now soaking them... will they still work for the crackers and breads?

Sorry you haven't gotten a response on your question. Hard winter wheat is for sprouting and growing wheatgrass. Summer or soft wheat will be successful in your recipes. Possible subs may include sprouted barley or oat groats.
Do a banana search here on the site for maybe also subbing kamut or spelt if those are available.
Best of luck with your recipe.

Thanks a bunch... I looked under the banana about wheat berries but I will look for kamut or spelt also. I may just have to take a hike to the Whole Foods Market and stock up on the soft wheat berries...
