    When I travelled to Italy in 1998, I enjoyed the company of a fellow who was also on the tour with his partner. I got this recipe from him, John Karustis.

      Very tasty! The barley took a little longer than expected (about an hour), but was worth the wait. Do not let the 30 cloves of garlic put you off. It turns out soft and sweet, and tastes great with the lamb. Thanks for posting this!
