I hear what you’re saying …”She calls THAT winter?!?” Well, that’s how our winters are. Believe me, I’ve shoveled enough snow during my years in New Jersey, so I delight in the south’s version of this season!
|Pearled Barley (aka Shelled Wheat or Dzedzadz) is sold in Middle Eastern stores.|
Reduce heat to medium-low and cover; simmer, stirring often, for 35-40 minutes, or until barley begins to soften. (NOTE: Farro and regular barley might take less time to cook.)
|Soup in progress|
You will have to add more broth as the soup cooks, as the barley will absorb quite a bit of liquid - otherwise this will become Kale and Pearled Barley Stew, which is not a bad thing!
