Editorial Reviews

From the Author

There is a higher level of fear and uncertainty about our world today than there has been since the great depression.  This is motivating many to think of preparedness and food storage.  We also have more difficult economic times and more uncertainty about our economic future than any time since the great depression as well. 
Food storage is a significant household expense.  In addition, many stored foods are not as nutritious as fresh foods.  Both of these issues are addressed by using viable, sproutable grains and legumes as the core of your food storage plan.  In this domain, 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.  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.  Many of the improvements in the book came as a result of questions, feedback and criticism from readers of the earlier editions. For this, I am grateful. 
I wish all the very best in prosperity and security.
