Fine Barley??

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Got a recipe that calls for "fine barley," which I'm not familiar with.

Anyone know what that is? Can pearl barley substitute?

Thanks.

I had a barley soup recipe I made some years ago that called for fine barley, I could only find regular or pearled. I looked around and found that pearled is not swappable to regular due to the processing. I think 'fine barley' is small grains but not processed or pearled. I used regular barley and it turned out fine in my soup.

From looking around the internet it looks like it might be a barley meal. I found this Food - Adamba

It doesn't look like whole grain.

It is pearl barley, its just a finer grain.

I ran into the same problem and ended up using normal barley

In the recipe it appears just to be a thickening agent. So I'm figuring on running the pearl barley through the spice grinder.

Anyone see a problem with that?
