Wheat Berry Porridge (Cereal)

Do you know what a wheat berry is?  Its just a fancy name for a whole wheat seed. With very little effort they can be made into a delicious and filling cereal.  Cooking any grain like this with water or milk is called a porridge, oatmeal is a porridge.  My parents made this all of the time growing up, it is hearty, a bit chewy and sticks with you all morning.  It takes only minutes to make the night before, when morning comes you're ready to eat it. Just warm it up, add some milk, a little brown sugar, and maybe a dash of cinnamon.

Pour desired amount of wheat in pan
Fill pan of water, covering wheat with 1"

Bring to boil.
Turn off heat and cover with lid, let it sit overnight
By morning your ready to roll

Only about 1/2 cup is plenty
