How to Sprout Wheat Berries at Home in a Mason Jar

Share this article

You've all heard of whole wheat flour, but have you heard of wheat berries?   Wheat berries are the "whole grain" form of ground "whole wheat".   You can cook the berries until they are soft and use in your favorite soups, salads and side dishes but sprouting wheat berries provides you with a delicious and nutrient dense sprout for eating.   
Wheat berries contain brain, and germ which basically means it's loaded with fiber and protein.  They also are very high in all of your B vitamins.  
The flavor can be described as nutty and slightly sweet, which make them a wonderful choice for sprouting.  You'll love them on sandwiches and salads.  

Sprouting wheat berries is easy, and fun! 

This is what you'll need:
 1/2 cup of wheat berries
a quart sized mason jar
small piece of cheesecloth

Day 1:
Measure out a 1/2 cup of wheat berries and let them soak in water overnight. This will help to re-charge the berries and prepare them for sprouting.  

Day 2:
Come back to your wheat berries that have been soaking overnight.  Drain and rinse well. 
Transfer wheat berries into a mason jar and cover with cheesecloth. Secure with a rubber-band.
Place your mason jar full of wheat berries in a dark cupboard.  Rinse and drain one more time at the end of the day, returning it to its dark location afterwards. 

Day 3:
Rinse and drain 2x's today. Each time return to dark cupboard.

Day 4:
By day 4 your sprouts should be looking similar to this, which means they are ready to eat.  Rinse well, drain, and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.  Sprouts are best when eaten right away but may be kept in the refrigerator for up to a few days. 

Now go eat some sprouts!
