(Barley, Pearl)  Pearl barley is a barley that is polished to give it "market appeal".  Barley is an ancient grain, being mentioned in early historic writings.  Barley is mentioned in the Bible as one of the crops of Egypt (Exodus 9:31), and was an ingredient in the bread that God told Ezekiel to bake (Ezekiel 4:9).  33 grams of barley (1/4 cup, dry) contains no fat, 24 grams of complex carbohydrate (96 calories), 3 grams of protein (12 calories), and 5 grams of dietary fiber.  (Photo-left is actual size)

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-4)
