Is it winter already?

 


Barley is an excellent staple food due to its high carbohydrates, protein, calcium and phosphorus.  Pearl barley is polished so that the grain loses the husk and most of its bran. Like rice, barley can be a useful thickener for soups and stews.

Cultivation of barley began in the Middle East, originally native to Israel and Jordan.

Barley flour can be made into porridge, pizzas and unleavened bread. Having hardly any gluten, it is of little use for risen bread or in pasta.
