I have a recipe to use Spelt Berries and I am suppose to soak overnight according to manufacturer instructions. So I did. My recipe calls for 1 cup, I soaked one cup and they grew, so do I use all of them or do I scoop out one cup according to recipe.

One recipe says: In a medium bowl,soak the wheat berries overnight in cold water. The next day, drain the wheat berries and place in a medium sized pot, covered in 3 inches of water. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to medium and simmer for 1 hour. Drain and cool.

Second Recipe says: 1 cup uncooked spelt (or wheat) berries - Place spelt berries in a pot and cover with water to 2 inches above the berries. Bring to a boil and then simmer on medium until tender, about 35-45 minutes. Add more water if necessary.

But all her recipes normally say soak overnight. I guess I want to know, since I soaked overnight, can I use all of them? I am thinking yes, it was 1 cup dry, cooked or soaked they grew to two cups.

Sorry I am so confusing!!
