The life of wheat! Which is your favorite food made from wheat?

As a child, I always expected the sound of “Ding-ding-tong” from Vendors selling rock maltose candy. And grandpa would malt the wheat on his own to hand-pull maltose syrup for us. From a handful of grain seeds to a basketful of wheat is a cycle of life. Malt can turn into maltose, straws into hats, and flour into all divine combinations: Steamed buns, cold jelly noodles, Chinese pork burgers, fried dough twists, noodles, and roasted gluten … What a treasure crop wheat is!
