Juanita's First Thursday Creations - Sampling

October 2, 2014 - 3:30pm - 5:30pm
Potsdam Co-op - 24 Elm St.

Join Juanita at the Co-op to sample her delicious food creations and learn about how to use the various grains and other ingredients available at the Co-op! Recipes are always available to take home. This week Juanita will be sampling a Wheat Berry Salad. Wheat berries. A grain? A fruit? What can you do with them? Lots! Wheat berries are actually the wheat seed, complete as nature intended, except for the hull. They can be winter or spring berries, hard or soft wheat, and red or white in color. These little gems are high in protein, Vitamins B1 and B3, magnesium, phosphorus, copper, and manganese. High in dietary fiber, they help lower blood cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Their chewy texture makes them delightful in salads, breads, desserts, and breakfast dishes. Wheat berries are well known in some European countries and, in fact, McDonald's in Switzerland has added them to their menu!
