How to Use

It is not necessary to pre-soak pearl barley; however it does require a good quantity of liquid when cooking. If including barley in soups or hotpots add it at the beginning of the cooking process with 3-4 cups of water or stock and allow approximately 45 minutes cooking time.To cook pearl barley as a side dish, simmer 1 cup of barley and 3 cups of water or stock, covered on a low heat for about 45 minutes.When barley is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed; fluff grains with a fork, and serve with curries and stir fries. Pearl barley is a delicious alternative to oat porridge when cooked with milk and is great topped with a sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar. Pre-cooked barley can also be used in salads and as a savoury filling for stuffed peppers.
