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.
