tried the wheat kernels today. they also toasted up nicely, and unlike the barley, actually made a nice popping noise when doing so. much more enjoyable to eat it this way, at least for me, than making a porridge or gruel. I have little doubt that the higher heat destroys some of the nutritional value, but the addition of fat and salt ensures I'll eat a lot more of it than I could stomach plain boiled wheat, with its cloying sweetness and hint of spices. plus it uses a lot less fuel and it's quicker.
