Black Barley - 1.75 lbs.

$5.99

Black Barley is also known as Purple Hull-less Barley. Originally from Ethiopia, this variety has not been raised until recently because of the low yield. A farmer in Montana decided to take a risk, found a pretty good market his first year with small distributors who sell direct to restaurants. Now, with much greater supplies available, Woodland has great prices. This is actually the only grain that can go from field to table without being processed, because the gloom or bran layer stays attached to the kernel, and is edible.

Suggested Use:
The shape of this hearty grain resembles a coffee bean and cooks to a glossy purplish-mahagony color. It is wonderful in gourmet soups and stuffings or alone as a beautiful alternative to rice (Because of a somewhat chewy texture, it is best mixed with other grains.)
