Sprout some wheat, grind it up and shape a living loaf.Bake it in an oven or on a wood stove - at low temperature, and you've got live bread!
How to make it:
- 3 cups wheat berries
- 3 cups water to cover
- Beginning several days before you hope to be eating this bread, rinse the wheat berries in cool water, drain and submerge the berries with cool water in a large bowl. Cover the bowl with a plate or cloth, and allow the berries to soak at normal room temperature overnight or for about 12 hours. The berries will soak up a considerable amount of water. Drain the berries in a colander, cover the colander with a plate to prevent the berries from drying out, and set it in a place away from light and where the sun won't shine on it. Rinse the berries about 3 times a day, and they will soon begin to sprout. In a couple of days the sprouts will reach their optimum length of about l/4 inch. Growth depends on moisture and temperature so be patient.
- Grind in a food mill or in a food processor.
- After grinding, dump the mushed up grain onto a clean work surface. Squeeze and knead the grain for about 10 minutes, and then form up 2 small round, hearth-style loaves with your hands. Coat a cookie sheet with flax or sesame seeds to keep the loaf from sticking. An alternate way is to dip the bottom of each loaf into a bowl fill with seeds - they will stick to the dough.
- Always use a cookie sheet and bake at approximately 160 degrees (higher is okay up to 250 degrees, but this will kill some of the enzymes). How long to bake? Well that depends on the shape of the loaf. Thick loaves will take about an hour, smaller loaves naturally will take less time. It should be moist and chewy inside. Experiment.
- It's delicious!
