DIRECTIONS

  • Place water and barley in a 1 1/2 quart pot. Bring to a boil. Let boil until liquid is reduced by half, approximately 10 to 15 minutes, which allows the natural sugars to come out of the barley. The remaining liquid should be brown.
  • Drain the barley, saving the liquid, and either eat the cooked barley or throw away (it's only 2 tablespoons).
  • Return the liquid to the pot and add up to 2 tablespoon sugar, or other sweetner of choice.
  • Simmer the liquid for about 15 minutes. If you want, at the end of simmering for 15 minutes, add up to 2 tablespoons lemon juice (although, for me personally, adding lemon juice would just get in the way of the barley flavor).
  • Serve warm out of a coffee cup.
