For some reason (Okay, okay. i know why it is. It was on special, looked interesting and I had a fistful of someone else's money handy), I seem to have a couple of packets of pearl barley in my kitchen, and absolutely no idea what to do with it.<br><br><br><br>
Any ideas?

My Mom used to use it in Polish spinach soup. I have no idea how to spell the Polish word but it is called <b>stchyav</b> (phonetic spelling).<br><br><br><br>
I think it would go well in any soup with greens.

You can cook it like rice (3 parts water or stock to 1 part barley) and serve it as a side dish... It's also amazing if you toast it first. This takes awhile (unlike buckwheat groats which toast nicely in a couple of minutes, buckwheat probably takes about 10 minutes of toasting in a dry pan) but adds a lot to the flavour.<br><br><br><br>
This recipe sounds good too <a href="http://www.vegweb.com/food/rice/barley-pilaf.shtml." target="_blank">http://www.vegweb.com/food/rice/barley-pilaf.shtml.</a>
