I have been so inspiration-less that I have no idea what to blog but I thought that I should blog about BARLEY today.

There are so much goodness about barley. It has been a very long time since I have eaten home-boiled barley drink and I long to drink one now. I have had enough of powdered form barley drinks.

Barley is believed to be a preventive cure for cancer and cardiovascular disease as well as Type 2 Diabetes.

The origin of barley. This is how a barley plant looks like. It's wonderful to know that each grain has a priceless value for deterring deadly diseases.

The grains freshly plucked from the plant. This grains look very different from the regular Ipoh barley grains that I see. Hmm...

Look! These grains look more familiar, don't you think?

Another shot of the grains with a human touch to it.

I always thought barley can only be boiled but there are actually various ways to use barley in recipes.

Barley stew with onions and carrots. This picture makes me go hungry.

For those who are more into baking, you can make barley pies too!

I have never tasted barley pies. I wonder how they actually taste like? Anyone daring enough to take up the challenge to bake it? When you do, remember to leave a comment here so I can rush to where you are to have a bite. :)

After writing this post, I feel like going to a barley plantation. Any recommendation where I can find one?
