Ingredients: Descriptions and Photos
Barley

(Barley)  Most people are familiar with pearl barley, but whole grain barley has a much fuller flavor, as well as being more nutritious.  Barley was also an important grain in Biblical times, being the grain that Ruth gleaned in Boaz's field some 3,000 years ago.  We purchase our whole grain barley from the co-op or from a health food store.  We use whole grain barley as one of the ingredients in bread and in other recipes containing barley.  The photo to the left shows the actual size of the barley grains.  See the nutritional chart below.

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-8)
