pearl wheat pudding

pearl wheat pudding | conifères & feuillus

In my previous post, I posted a recipe for wheat porridge using whole wheat berries. It’s as nutritious as wheat can get. Today’s recipe is made with pearl wheat, a processed version of its whole counterpart. The pearling process strips the wheat kernel of its bran layer and germ (partly or entirely), making it less nutritious. Although less nutritious, pearl wheat is still a good source of fiber and lends itself perfectly for making a pudding.

artichoke & apple soup

The notion of implied meaning is the root of misunderstanding. —Eric Parslow

Every time I make this soup, I always feel that it came to be from a misunderstanding, and that it should really be made with sunchokes, the root vegetable (otherwise known as Jerusalem artichokes, which aren’t artichokes or from Jerusalem for that matter), instead of with globe artichokes.
