It also covers the storage of wheat and other grains and legumes and goes into the preparation of all of the basic foods from the whole grain to the finished product in the simplest and most foolproof manner possible.
The book’s author John W. Hill says, when it comes to food storage, “…wheat is king because of its long term storage qualities, its nutritional value as a fresh food (especially when sprouted) and its superior bread making qualities.”
He further says, “While whole grains are relatively inexpensive to acquire and store, many people are not familiar with how to easily and efficiently turn them into food.
“In answering these questions for myself, I compiled the first edition of this book in 1994. In this third edition, I have added a substantial amount of new information and broadened my explanations and descriptions of many of the basic principles and processes of storage and cooking with wheat and other whole grains and legumes.”
