“In Montana this is quite a common fruit salad at potlucks. I used red durham wheat. You can use any raw wheat that has been washed. Go to a bulk foods place where they have barrels of spices and different foods and you can dip a scoop in and sack. We definitely do not call it "wheatberries" here but perhaps that is the name in the store.The best part is that it is easy, makes a lot and is a crowd pleaser. I guarantee the bowl will be wiped clean.”
