I was sure I had pearl barley in the cabinet. But it was just barley. I am trying to make a barley soup and it calls for pearl and I have just barley, can i use it anyway....
Here is the recipe if that helps....
Thank you in advance you guys are great!
4 tbsp. butter
1 leek, cut in thin strips
1 medium onion, cut in thin strips
3 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 carrot, grated
1/2 cup PEARL BARLEY
1 sprig thyme
Heat the butter in a saucepan over low heat until melted. Add leeks and onion and cook until the leeks begins to soften. Add the potatoes and carrot and cook for about 10 minutes, then cover with boiling water. When the mixture returns to a boil, add the barley and thyme. Let cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 1 hour, until the barley is tender. Season with salt and pepper.
Everyone deserves a sweet holiday.
