3/4 cup chopped walnuts, lightly toasted
1 1/2 cups wheat berries
8 cups water
1/2 cup poppy seeds, divided
1/3 cup honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
The day before you plan to serve, rinse the wheat berries and soak overnight in 8 cups of water.
On cooking day, preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
Pour berries and water into a large non-metallic pan and bake for 2 hours at 250 degrees, or until soft but chewy. Stir every 15-30 minutes, checking for doneness along the way.
Remove from oven and place mixture in serving dish. Add butter and honey and gently toss until melted. Stir in walnuts, cinnamon and most of the poppy seeds, saving a few to sprinkle on top before serving.
