Great responses,and some very good ideas.
I to found rolled barley, but at the supermarket, just once. I used it in place of oats and found it delightful. I tried using it to add move texture to some chicken soup I made. I used too much rolled barley and ended up with chicken porridge, instead of chicken soup
. It was still vert tasty though. I can definitely see it in cookies, and in no-bake cookies, and home-made granola and such.
I prefer barley to oats as it has about the same nutritional value,but is more kidney friendly, as well as the face that while hte soluble fiber in oats is in the oat bran, it is in the entire barley kernel. It's better for the gut as well.
I believe that barley is underrated by most people. Many think the only things barley are good for is making malt, and beef. That's sad to me.
