About a year ago I finally got into the habit of soaking my wheat berries before grinding them for making healthier breads.
With all the health benefits to soaking your grains and seeds, it is a good habit to get into but does require some planning ahead. In the video below, I demonstrate how I soak, dry, and store my wheat berries and my ground flour for best preservation and so I have plenty on hand when needed for making breads.

Here is my affiliate link to my Country Living Grain Mill that I highly recommend as it can grind anything and we plan to build a motor someday for when I simply do not have time to hand mill to streamline my day, it is an expense but it is well worth it. Fresh ground flour, beans, corn, whatever on or off the grid: http://amzn.to/2mStK6m
