Does anybody have some reliable recipes for baking with barley? Tasty bread, of course, and rolls and crackers, but also anything else, including Grape-nuts-type breakfast cereals. I understand the earliest ancient Greeks used barley extensively, but I also understand we don't have many recipes from that long ago. Wink Any suggestions will be appreciated!

Here's a good one for bread that I made a while back.  Very tasty.

Thank you!

That also gives me another barley-heavy cuisine to begin researching (another being Tibetan). I guess I assumed the Moroccan staple is wheat.

Something to be expected, as barley was particularly prized for its entheogenic properties. Wink

Anyway, here's something else to try: Pork and pearl barley stew.

Ever try barley soup? With or without meat?
If you like soup, I will ask SWMBO for the recipe (asleep now and while you are all right with me, I live with her!)

this is what i do with barley:
http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,53762.msg990145.html#msg990145

(i modified the recipe to use pearl barley and to add short cuts!)
you can eat koliva even if no one has died, but if you are nearly middle aged as i am,
you will know enough people who have died for it to be nearly one of their anniversaries!

i actually took it to a funeral recently, and it went down fairly well.
(not quite sure as most of the people there were british and so very polite!)

that was my thought also, I resisted temptation posting it since this thread first appeared. I third the motion that malting, and mashing barley to make liquid bread is the proper use.

Great movie clip explaining the proper use of barley, and the theological implications thereof
