‘Pearls’ of nutrition (with which comes wisdom!)- these hulled grains of barley are pretty as a picture. JIWA’S Organic Pearl Barley is minimally processed to retain its fibre and nutrition. These dainty pearls double up (in size & in taste!) when cooked, and are a great alternative to rice across meals. The high starch content makes cooked barley a great thickener for dishes, and ideal for risottos and even soups. The water barley is cooked in, is loaded with nutrients and aids in weight loss.
Storage & Shelf Life
Best before 6 months from date of manufacturing, fresher the better! Conventionally stored in tin boxes away from moisture and heat.
- Rinse ¾ cup of Jiwa’s Pearl barley under running water till the water is clear.
- Add this to a saucepan with 6 cups of water, and let simmer for 25-30 minutes, or till the barley is cooked through.
- The pearls retain their shape and chewiness, yet become softer on the bite.
Once barley is cooked through, Strain and reserve the water. Flavour with lemon juice and salt- and give your gut a treat! The cooked barley is great to add to a quick warm salad or soup too
