  1. In a large pot, bring the wheat and the water to a boil, remove from heat and soak overnight. By the next morning, the wheat should have doubled in size. Cook over very low heat, adding the sugar until nearly all the water is absorbed (it should have the consistency of porridge). Stir in the raisins and the vanilla extract. Divide into small bowls and decorate with walnuts and almonds arranged to look like petals. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Makes 8 servings.
