Another useful dish from barley grist. Put some crushed and cleaned barley into a pot, pour hot water onto it, let it soak until it's cold enough for your hands, take it out with your hands, squeeze it and wash it in another pot of water; meanwhile make some almond milk. If you'd like to make it with water, put the clean barley into hot water, and if you'd like, you can add some milk. Once done, boil the almond milk, pour it onto the barley and cook them. If you made it with water, add some hot butter, and once cooked, add a bit of salt and some sugar or cinnamon and rose water.
