I learned this technique from Everyday Whole Grains (Oxmoor House, 2016). It will work for any hard-shelled grains, such as farro, wheat berries, rye berries, spelt, or kamut—and you can adapt the spices added as you do for any type of pickling solution. —Ali Slagle
What You'll Need
apple cider vinegar
cooked wheat berries, farro, rye berries, farro, spelt, or Kamut
In a small saucepan, bring the first 5 ingredients to a boil, then simmer for 3 minutes.
Add the grains and simmer for 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and let cool to room temperature. They'll be pickle-y an hour after.
