St. Barbara’s Christmas Dessert
Method
  • Wash the cracked wheat thoroughly and soak in water overnight.
  • The following day, drain and add to a pot with enough water to completely cover it.
  • Boil for 30 minutes over medium heat. Stir often, until the wheat completely softens. Watch it closely so that the water doesn’t completely evaporate while cooking and add a little more water if necessary.
  • You want the wheat to cook through and also to have a little liquid left in order to help the flour come together.
  • When ready, add all of the remaining ingredients to the pot.
  • Stir continuously while waiting for the cream to boil and thicken.
  • You want the texture to be like a cream that is not so thick or like a creamy, slightly soupy risotto.
  • Serve the sweet topped with sesame seeds, ground cinnamon and walnuts in individual serving bowls or in one large serving bowl.
Tip
You have to make sure to wash the cracked wheat thoroughly so that any dirt is washed away. To toast the flour, sauté it in a pan on its own while stirring continuously. You want it to turn light golden not dark in color.
