Zursun Black Barley
Good for the earth and good for you, this black barley is from heirloom seeds that promote agricultural diversity as well as authentic flavor. With a mahogany color and coffee bean shape, this hearty, nutty grain makes a refreshing substitute for rice in soups, salads and side dishes. Black barley has been prized for generations in Ethiopia as a whole grain that can go from field to table without processing, as the edible bran layer is attached to the kernel. Adds nutty flavor and chewy texture to soups, salads, stuffing and pilaf. Makes an excellent alternative to rice, or combine it with rice and other grains for rich texture and color. These botanical heirlooms are a part of living history, supporting centuries-old plant varieties and preserving the genetic diversity of our food supply. Produced by Zursun, a second-generation family-owned company and one of America's oldest suppliers of heirloom beans. Recipe included. 1 lb. 8 oz. Product of Canada.
