Right I have 375 g of pearl barley left in my 500g bag and unless I get some VERY EXCITING and dramatic ideas of what the chuff to do with it the dds will be clearing it out from the top back shelf in 40 years time when I have snuffed it.
It takes much longer than risotto rice Trillian (says she who has only done it once). About an hour, maybe more. didn't fart arse about with all the stirring shennanigans. Amounts about the same as rice.
I did it (the PB risotto) with bratwusrt sausages. It was VERY good.
Someone else just mentioned this thread and I Googled. I am now resurrecting for the sole purpose of pointing out that in just over two years the price of Pearl Fucking Barley has ROCKETED from 39p to 55p! Now see what happens when you bloody MNers make things trendy!"!!
*I have never bought, cooked or eaten PFB. (Pearl Fucking Barley, not precious first-born. Although I didn't cook and eat him, either.)
