SHILOH FARMS Organic Hulless Barley is a versatile cereal grain with a chewy texture and rich, nutty flavor.
Hulless barley refers to a specific variety of barley in which the tough, inedible outer hull is only loosely connected to the kernel. Because the outer hull is so loosely adhered, when the grain is harvested in the field, the hull naturally falls off, reducing the need for additional processing to remove it. Because this product requires minimal cleaning, most of the bran and endosperm is left intact and the germ is present.
Hulless Barley is one of the most nutritious grains on earth, with more fiber and greater overall nutritional value than pearled barley. Naturally high in protein, fiber, and a variety of essential minerals (including manganese, selenium, copper, and phosphorus), it has the lowest glycemic index of any grain (about 1/3 that of wheat), making it a great choice for diabetics. Barley also has a different gluten structure than wheat, meaning that some with celiac disease and wheat allergies are able to safely consume barley.
To Cook: Sort and rinse. Add 1 part barley to 3 cups water and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until tender, approximately 1-2 hours.
Because it is a true whole grain, hulless barley requires a fairly long cooking time; however, you can reduce this by pre-soaking the grain for 8-10 hours, or overnight. Pre-soaking will reduce the cooking time by half.
1. A favorite soup grain, barley is also a great addition to chili, stews, casseroles and salads.
2. Barley may substituted for rice or other grains in any recipe.
3. Pair barley with green beans, fresh peas, mushrooms, and onions.
4. Grind barley into a flour to be added to baked goods.

This is my very favorite barley. I recommend soaking overnight to reduce cooking time. It is great in soups and I've also made it with lentils and veggies as a very hearty and tasty pilaf. Thank you Shiloh farms for your quick shipping and excellent customer service.
