Pearled barley is a favorite for cereal and soups. This is a barley that has been processed to remove the tough inedible outer hull and then pearled or polished. It is versatile for many recipes. May be cooked and served as a side dish similar to rice. It may also be used to add healthful fiber, chewy texture and nutty flavor to soups, stews, casseroles, salads, pilafs, and fillings. The delicious flavor and versatility make it ideal for long-term food storage.
