Take wheat and barley, beans and lentils, millet and spelt;
put them together in a container and make them into bread for
yourself. Ezekiel 4:9
This bread dries out quickly and therefore tastes best when
fresh. If you want the bread to last longer, use 1/3 Cup honey,
and additional flour as needed, although this modification is
not as authentic it does promote shelf life.

kernels to make 2 cups sprouts, using Method #l at this link.
