Cracked Wheat Hot Cereal

I am convinced that the absolutely best things in the world are the simple things. Simple as cracked wheat. A friend of mine had cracked some wheat in her blender hoping for flour and then decided to just give it all to me because she didn't know what to do. I made up some cracked wheat hot cereal to have her taste so she can see how good it is and then ground up a lot of her other wheat into flour to give it all back to her.
The possibilities are endless with this cereal. You could add cinnamon, brown sugar and raisins or just butter and sugar like I did here. Honey and pecans would be amazing in it. It's just really good. Anyway, here is another way to use your wheat. And all you need is wheat and a blender!

Cracked Wheat Hot Cereal
1/2 C cracked wheat
1 1/2 C water (you could use milk for a creamier consistency)

In saucepan get the water hot and then add the wheat. Cook until the water is almost all cooked into the cereal. Add whatever you want for taste. I did 1 T butter in the water here and then 2 T sugar.

To crack your wheat just run it through your blender until you get small chunks of wheat!

I thoroughly agree with your praise for cracked wheat and (more broadly) for the simple things in life.

Here is my own, more lengthy ode to cracked wheat :)
