Pearl Barley - 500g
Food of the gladiators! Barley was one of the very first domesticated grains, first documented on ancient cuneiform tablets found in Persia. Of course in more recent times we know it as a rather important ingredient in beer! It’s also making a comeback at the dinner table as people look to include fewer processed foods in their diet. We stock pearled barley grains (in which the outer bran layer has been removed) meaning it cooks faster and has a more tender texture, similar to cracked wheat or a wild rice. It is a very versatile grain with a rich, robust, nutty flavour. It’s a great tummy filler and the perfect vehicle for all kinds of flavours!
