Barley Biscuits

(Based on the recipe from... The Natural Nine by Magic Mill.. Cooking with Whole Grains by Lorraine D. Tyler)

First, Grind the Barley in your grain grinder.  Here's the flour, it tastes like mild flavored wheat flour, almost like oat flour. It's grinds into a fine texture!
Pearl Barley,           Regular Barley,        Barley Flour made from regular barley
1 c. of barley makes 2 c. of ground barley flour
Barley Biscuits
3 c. barley flour
1/2 t. salt
3/4 t. baking soda
1/8 t. cream of tartar
1 c. Cream
1 T. lemon juice
Mix the dry ingredients together and the wet ingredients together, let set for 5 minutes. Gently mix the wet and dry ingeredients together and press 1/2" thick on a barley floured counter. Cut out and cook on a greased, 375 degree griddle for 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Turn once.  Made 8 biscuits.

                                   I still need a PICTURE of them :)

RESULTS...  Monica said....   At first, I thought they'd be like a brick in my stomach and I thought there was no way they'd be done in 5 minutes.   They cooked up and were really light with a fine texture, like pancakes. They were really good, quite tasty, and very very nice!
 Later she informed me that they are good cold and her 15 year old son ate some.. he enjoyed them too!   The next day they had more of a cornbread texture, like biscuits.
