Most of us, especially the older generation, pearl barley is strongly associated with the Russian army. And though barley porridge not the only dish where it goes (remember at least pickleв soup), "barley porridge with meat" these are the canned food familiar to many of us. But here's the bad news: they are not on sale (at least not found for all these years), but sometimes you want it. My spouse thumbed her nose from this dish, and her face read only one question: "how do you eat it"? I like that.
