Black Barley is the only grain that can go from field to table without being processed. The shape resembles a coffee bean and cooks to a glossy purplish-opal color. With nutty flavor and chewy texture, this grain is a healthy and colorful addition to stuffing or pilaf.
Add 1 cup Black Barley to 3 cups boiling water. Cover and simmer until about 50 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Drain any excess water.
Storage & handling
Store in cool, dry place.
Barley. (May contain a trace percentage of cereal grains)
In this recipe, black barley and our Portabella Mushrooms combine to make a rich, filling soup. Precooking the black barley before adding it to the soup and rehydrating the mushrooms separately makes for a clearer broth.
