I only removed their skin.





Cut apricots and figs into small pieces ( I cut apricots into 4 and figs about 8 ) Put figs into water so the seeds may come out a bit.

After washing wheat seeds pour hot water on it until all covered, and boil about 10 minutes. Then drain the yellow water and add in hot water and boil again 10 minutes then drain again. Add hot water again and boil about 50 minutes (I had the cooked version from momJ) Wash rice.
