Barley flakes are a versatile ingredient in your kitchen. Whether you are using these for a new twist on breakfast or adding to your favourite bread mix this will add a new dimension to your food.
For great-tasting barley porridge, stir one cup flakes into two cups of water (soak for 10 minutes for a creamier porridge), bring to a boil, stir and cover with lid, and let simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, until liquid is absorbed and desired texture is achieved.
