      After I tagged this recipe I saw that it had cinnamon in it and then wondered how that would taste. I only used 1/4 teaspoon since I used Cinnamon Vietnamese Cassia X fancy from Penzey Spice Co. At the store they said you could use half the amount that the recipe calls for using their spices. I did enjoy the light flavor of cinnamon and the hint of lemon. I used Quick Barley and it was done it 15 minutes with no liquid left over. So I'm glad I did not use the pearl as I'm sure I would have had to add more liquid. Thank you for a fast and tasty meal. I will make this again! Made for *Zaar Cookbooks Tag 2008* game
