Heirloom Hulless Purple Barley


 Product Description

Once lost to history, this heirloom grain has been rediscovered and revived for a new generation! A nutrient-rich hulless variety, SHILOH FARMS Heirloom Purple Barley is noted for its hearty texture, nutty flavor, and beautiful color.

Naturally high in vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients, purple barley provides more zinc than lentils, more fiber than wheat, and more B Vitamins than white barley. Because the grain's tough, inedible outer hull is only loosely connected to the kernel, it naturally falls during harvesting (meaning additional processing to remove the hull is not required). As a result most of the bran and endosperm is left intact and the germ is present, making hulless barley is one of the most nutritious grains on earth!

Discovered in Tibet, this variety of purple barley was first brought to the United States almost 100 years ago and tucked away for decades in a seed vault. Luckily its reputation spurred a revival in interest for this heirloom grain, meaning we get to enjoy its superior flavor and nutrition today!

What are Heirloom Grains? Prized for their rich, distinctive flavors and unique nutritional benefits, heirloom grains are true grains that have not been genetically modified, but rather grown as nature intended. Known as a dietary staple for thousands of years, our ancestors once relied upon these ancient grain varieties to provide nourishment and sustenance. SHILOH FARMS brings these versatile, nutrient-rich, and hearty grains into the 21st Century - the perfect addition to a healthy, wholesome lifestyle!

For even more wholesome, healthy goodness, try our entire line of Heirloom Grains & Beans:  EinkornEmmer Farro, Christmas Lima Beans and Orca Beans!  

To Cook: Sort* and rinse. Bring 1 part barley and 3 parts water to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, until tender, approximately 40-50 minutes.

To reduce cooking time by about half, soak the grain 8-10 hours or overnight. Drain off soaking liquid, cover grain with fresh water, and proceed with cooking as instructed above.

  2. Most Delicious Barley

    Posted by Olytown on 1st Jan 2021

    We really enjoy this barley. It takes longer to cook if you don't want it as chewy, but the time is worth it. It is delicious for breakfast with thawed cherries and brown butter ghee. It is also good with roasted vegetables and golden raisins. It works well in soups and stews also.
    I like to cook it with water and then add the cooked barley to dishes. We cook a large batch and keep it on hand to add texture and flavor to many dishes.

    Very high in antioxidants, but is much tougher than regular barley. Guess that's the trade-off ;)
