Organic Black Barley
Organic Black Barley (sometimes called "Purple Hull-less 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 of barley to 3 cups of boiling water. Simmer covered for 50 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Drain any excess liquid.
Storage & handling
Store in cool, dry place.
In this recipe, black barley and our Portabella Mushrooms combine to make a rich, filling soup. Precooking the black barley andsoaking the portabella mushrooms separately allows the vegetables to keep a little bite with a shorter cook time.
