Recipe Exchange: Cracked Wheat Cereal

This week I’m getting back to The Little House on the Prairie Old Fashioned Recipe Exchange. Today’s recipe is  for a much loved hot cereal I fell in love with while working at The Cannon Beach Christian Conference Center in Oregon: yummy Cracked Wheat Cereal! I also met my husband while working there – whoo hoo!! For years the non-crock pot version eluded me, but I can now make it much more quickly, and in smaller portions. And without planning so far ahead. This recipe is sooo easy, with great reward. It’s a hearty, nutty, great breakfast or anytime food!

Cracked Wheat Cereal:

1/4 cup cracked wheat

1 cup water

dash of salt

**Simply put all of these ingredients into a small pot and simmer slowly for a half hour, stirring about every 5 minutes. The cracked wheat should absorb all of the water and thicken into a beautiful cereal. So easy!

**My favorite way to eat this is with a bit of brown sugar, but here are some other ideas:

Milk

Honey

Apple juice

**I’m also linking up with Raising Homemakers and Tip Me Tuesday with the Tip Junkie, so hop on over and check out their tips!
