      This is a 10 star dish! Lots of flavor. My husband that doesn`t like barley came back for thirds! I just loved it! Ok I cut the recipe in half no problem. I skipped the pumpkin not in season with no problem. I used cherry preserve and orange rind instead of the marmalade, No problem! And used regular not quick-cooking barley, just added orange juice to pot as it went dry! Took 30 minutes stove top! Daphne this was just wonderful!I loved this it will be made again. Thank you for turning me on to this delicious dish.

      This is part of a birthday party dinner for 50 people for my husband this weekend. I did not use the pumpkin and also used regular barley. One of our guest is Iranian and she requested this recipe. She says that it reminds her of an Arabic dish that her mom used to make, but even better! Thanks for sharing!
