Chewy pearled barley comes with a natural taste. I soak it for 2 hours then cook it in a rice cooker. Very easy in preparation. Usually I cook a big pot of pearled barley with brown rice or quinoa and keep it in fridge. I eat it with greens or hot soup that is comforting and nutritious.
Not bad! Doesn't state the origin of the pearled barley, and with the lower standard that comes with USDA-organic, I'll be on the lookout for better quality barley. Package is resealable, and with the small size, it lasts for about 6-8 meals. Great for soups and good source of fiber and niacin.
If you like barley, this is a good one. It's hard to find organic barley locally so I was glad to find this one. I did rinse it well before using.
Since it’s organic I use it to bring down my uncle’s pressure. He soaks it at night in water and drinks the water in the morning. The barley you can boil and prepare for breakfast.
I prefer to use organic products and was delighted to find the Arrowhead barley. The package is resealable, which is a plus. The barley is high quality and I add it to homemade soups.
I'm eating barley for the soluble fiber and as an alternative to high-arsenic rice. I enjoy the texture of this, and I haven't noticed any signs of digestive discomfort. I will continue to eat this as a part of my grains rotation(oats, rice, buckwheat, barley).
Great to make salads or add in as a topping for dishes to give extra texture. Cooking time can be long and I boil 1 cup barley to 5 cups water in low heat, 50 minutes. After cooking, I’ll make a drink out of the slightly thickened excess barley water by adding 2/3 cubes of rock sugar and ginger!
Good texture and flavor for soup, or with tomato as salad
The quality of this barley is the best I've ever had in taste, easy to use. The packaging is easy to open.
