Serves: 8 to 10
Easiest hot breakfast ever: all the prep is done the night before!
  • 2 cups of wheatberries, any type, rinsed
  • 3½ cups of water
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp allspice
  • ¼ tsp freshly-ground nutmeg
  • 2-inch knob of fresh ginger, peeled and split in half
  • 2 Tb butter, unsalted
  • 2 Tb coconut oil
  • 4 Tb raw honey, reserved until morning
  • milk or half-and-half
  • accoutrements: candied ginger, pecans, raisins or other dried fruit, additional cinnamon, coconut, berries, or whatever makes you and your family happy. Sliced apples are good, too.
  1. Mix together in your crockpot the first 9 ingredients (down to the honey--it will be added in the morning), and stir well. You can add or subtract spices as you like. Ginger and cloves are dandy additions, especially if you don't have allspice, say. Cover, and set the crockpot on "low" for 6 to 8 hours.
  2. In the morning, stir in the honey, add a bit of hot water if it's a little dry, and your hot cereal is ready to eat. Dish it up, add any of the accoutrements that sound good to you, pour on a bit of milk, and eat!
