    Tea Jenny's Note:

    This soup has been handed down the family, and my Gran used to make it for our lunch and that's going back a bit, my sisters think mine is as good as Gran's, but I dont think anyone could make it like Gran as she made it on an old fireplace range and you could taste the smoke from the fire. It's a very warming delicious soup that will make you want more. Good for a cold day to warm you up but we have it all year round. It can get cold at night in summer here in Scotland and we have this for supper strange you might think but wait till you try it you will see.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      The night before you want your soup soak the barley, peas, and lentils in cold water overnight.
    2. 2
      Next morning, rinse the grains and put in a pot with the stock and cook on a low heat for about 1 hour.
    3. 3
      After the hour add the vegetables and the seasoning and cook for about 2 1/2 hours on a low heat.
    4. 4
      You can cook this in your slow cooker if you wish.

      Have not seen this recipe (or similar) for many years. My mother made soup like this but did not use pearl barley. The only suggestion I have is that you have to use very good beef stock. It certainly is great on a cold wintery night and also healthy - enjoy. Liz
