Sort and wash beans; place in a large bowl. Cover with water to 2 inches above beans; cover and let stand 8 hours or overnight. Drain.

Cover with water to 2 inches above wheat berries. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon salt; cook 20 minutes or until tender. Drain.
