About this recipe:
My mum used to make this for us when we had a sore throat. The warm drink would coat our throats and make soothe it. It is a wonderful drink anytime too!
100g pearl barley
200g rock sugar
1 large lemon, juiced
- Rinse the barley to get rid of grit and stones. In a large pot, boil the barley with the water and rock sugar.
- Simmer for about 30 minutes until the barley is soft and has expanded to about twice its size. You can strain the barley or use a spoon to eat it together with the liquid. Add the lemon juice.
- Serve hot or add ice cubes to serve on a hot, sunny day.
It keeps in the refrigerator for about 1 week.
