Sweetened boiled barley to dilute & drink, hot or cold. It is said to help flush out excess fluids from the body, detox and rehydrate. Very refreshing, too.

Recipe Ingredients for Sweet Barley

740 g pearl barley, washed and drained (start with 150g dry pearl barley, this will yield abt 740g cooked barley)
30 g white sugar
4 g ginger, crushed (optional)

Recipe Directions for Sweet Barley

  1. Boil the barley in plenty of water on low-medium heat till the grains expand to about 3 times their original size (Approx 2 hours). Skim off the surface a few times during cooking.
