Wheat is one of the most common foods but whole wheat grains - sometimes known as wheatberries - are surprisingly rarely used. They're a versatile, tasty and nutritious ingredient that brings the full flavour of wheat, whether used whole or freshly milled.
The grains can be soaked, cooked and eaten whole, but our current spring wheat is best suited for milling at home (we recommend using a Mockmill) an makes a flavoursome and nutritious flour.
