  • 1/2 Pound pomegranate seeds
  • 1/2 Pound walnuts
  • 1/2 Pound dried cranberries
  • 1/2 Pound golden raisins
  • 1/2 Pound black raisins
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground cloves
  • 3 Tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 3 Teaspoons sesame seeds

Directions

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the wheat berries and reduce the heat to a fast simmer. Cook until tender but still chewy, about 1 hour. Pour the wheat berries into a bowl and mix with the remaining ingredients. Mix well and let sit for 1 hour.

Wheat Berry Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Wheat Berry Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
