Hot Cracked Wheat (or "Mush")

This recipe can easily be modified to make less or more, depending on the size of your family. As is, this makes at least a double batch for my family, leaving leftovers that reheat easily in the microwave for a quick, no fuss breakfast that fills us up, keeps us healthy, and keeps us satisfied till lunchtime. Even my small kids can tell a difference in how they feel if we go more than a couple days eating something else for breakfast (such as when on vacation) and will actually request "mush."

"Mush" (Hot Cracked Wheat Cereal)

about 10 c. water
2-3 c. cracked wheat (depends on how course it is and how thick you want your mush)
honey to taste

Heat water to boiling.
Remove from heat, slowly stir in cracked wheat.
Stir a few minutes to mash out all lumps until smooth.
Replace lid, allow to sit for about 15 min.
Stir in honey to taste.
Let sit another 5-10 min.
Dish into bowls, top with fruit and/or cereal.

How do you crack your wheat? Buy it that way or does your grinder do it?

I actually have an old electric stone grinder I use to crack the wheat, but my mom's heavy duty blender does it just as well. So it depends on what you have. I'll be posting about this later...
