*To cook the wheat berries (you can do this ahead of time): I cook these like pasta, not like rice, so the ratio of water doesn't matter - you just need to make sure the water covers them. Fill a pot with salted water and add the wheat berries. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for about 1 hour (sometimes longer). About halfway through check to make sure there is still water covering the wheat berries. If most of your water has been absorbed but your wheat berries are still crunchy, add more water and continue simmering. They are done when they have a soft but still firm, not mushy, bite.
