To cook pearl barley
In medium saucepan with lid, bring 3 cups water to a boil. Add 1 cup pearl barley and return to boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 45 minutes or until barley is tender and liquid is absorbed. NOTE: Any extra cooked barley may be stored in an airtight container and refrigerated or frozen for up to a week. It's best to bring cooked and chilled pearl barley to room temperature before using.
