I was so excited to make this, but I should have been tipped off by not even liking how it smelled when I woke up this morning. I just attempted to eat this at work and it's inedible. I made it exactly as stated but honestly, this is a disgusting mess. I'm sorry I wasted a whole bag of organic barley and a bag of dried cherries in this. Horrible.
