Breakfast Kutia
Yield: 6 Servings

2 c wheatberries (whole kernels)
3 qt water
1 c poppy seeds
1/2 c chopped walnuts or almonds
1 apple, peeled, cored, diced
1/3 c honey
1 c sugar

Two days before:

Rinse and soak wheat overnight in cold water.

One day before:

Bring wheat to a boil, simmer for 3-6 hrs., until the wheat kernels
start to burst. Drain and cool.

Wash the poppy-seeds thoroughly in cold water, scald with boiling
water and drain. (A coffee filter set into a small sieve is good.)
Pour boiling water over them, bring to a boil, remove from the heat
and drain again. Keep in a cool place until used.

That morning:

Dissolve the honey in a little scalding hot water. Cool.

Mix together the wheat, poppy seeds, honey, chopped nuts and apples.
Serve cold.

Options: Add 1/3 cup raisins or currants, chopped dried peaches,
dates or figs or other dried fruit such as cherries.

This is the ritual first dish of the Polish and Ukrainian 12 course
meatless Christmas Eve Supper. The wheat represents the staff of
life, the honey represents the Spirit of Christ. I find that it
also makes an excellent breakfast porridge anytime.
