Submitted by: Sue in NJ
Recipe By :Robin Robertson, Fresh From the Vegetarian Slow Cooker

Serving Size : 4 

1/2 cup wheat berries
1/4 cup cracked wheat
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
4 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt -- *see Note
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 cup dried cranberries -- sweetened

Toss all ingredients EXCEPT cranberries in a 3 1/2 - 4 quart slow cooker; cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours.

Stir in the dried cranberries just before serving.

NOTES : Combine these great grains the night before so breakfast is ready when you are the next morning. This fragrant, hot cereal is good served with a little maple syrup or brown sugar and a splash of vanilla soy milk. Cinnamon or allspice may be used instead of cardamom. - notes by author.
