I don’t know how I first learned about making my own cream of wheat from ground wheat kernels. Y’all! I made some this morning. And Oh. My. Goodness!
What I did:
Took 1/3 cup of ground wheat (that I did in my small blender), toasted over medium heat (stirring often). You don’t want them to burn, just toast a little bit. Only did it for a couple of minutes. Set aside and got my 1 cup of water and a pinch of salt boiling and then slowly whisked in the toasted ground wheat. Whisked on medium low for about 4-5 minutes. Towards the end I added my sweetener and stirred it in. Poured into a bowl, added a tab of butter, and a little milk moat for the edge.
