  1. Where do I get the berries? Produce aisle? Canned fruit aisle? Never heard of them and can’t recall if I’ve seen anything like it. Looks yummy and I’m interested in trying this recipe.

  2. I am definitely going to try this. Can you buy wheat berries in the supermarket? Or the health food store?

    • I purchase mine at a local store that specializes in wheat, etc. I know you can buy them at Whole Food and I heard a friend say they actually saw bags at Walmart! Here is the link to the store where I purchase mine… http://www.breadbeckers.com/ Sorry this is so delayed….I haven’t been ‘here’ a lot this week.
