"
Elder Ezra Taft Benson, eventually the 13th president of the church, said in 1973: "The Lord has warned us of famines, but the righteous will have listened to prophets and stored at least a year's supply of survival food. . . . The revelation to store food may be as essential to our temporal salvation today as boarding the ark was to the people in the days of Noah."

POPPED WHEAT Take 1 cup cooked whole wheat kernels (cooked just about 30 minutes not until split), drain and rinse well, removing excess water by rolling in paper towels. In a heavy pan, add enough vegetable or olive oil to deep-fry the kernels and heat to 360 degrees. Add about 1-1/2 cups of wheat into a wire basket or strainer and pop for 1-1/2 minutes or until popping ceases. The wheat will not pop like popcorn; in fact some kernels may not pop at all but will be very crispy and golden. Drain on paper towels. Repeat process until all wheat is popped.
