Cooked Wheat Cereal*

1 cup wheat
3 cups water
1/2 tsp salt

Use one of the following cooking methods:

Slow Cooker: Combine the ingredients. Cook six to eight hours or overnight on low setting

Stovetop: Combine the ingredients. Cook about one hour, or soak overnight and cook for 30 minutes.

Thermos: Bring the water to boil in a pan. Put the wheat and salt into a one-quart thermos. Add the bliling water to the thermos, and screw the top on lightly. Allow to stand overnight.

Oven: Combine the ingredients. Cook overnight at 150 degrees F

This recipe is from

Early on in our marriage, Scott would occasionally have this for breakfast. He would eat it with honey, milk, and raisins. Since I came from a home where I loved to eat Captain Crunch, and Lucky Charm cereal, I thought this was a most unusual thing to eat for breakfast. This cereal will defiantly fill you up!

*This recipe is obviously a food storage recipe. Why else would you eat wheat for breakfast than to use up all that wheat stored in the crawl space under your house?
