Pearl Barley has had the bran partially removed, resulting in a quicker cooking time. It is a hearty grain that is great in soups, including classic comfort food dishes such as vegetable barley soup and beef and barley soup.


Pearl Barley—one of the world's oldest and most treasured grains‚ is used by cooks and chefs around the globe. Pearl Barley has the bran partially removed before it is polished, resulting in a smooth surface and quicker cooking time. However, pearled barley retains significant amounts of fiber, because barley contains fiber throughout the entire kernel and not just in the outer bran layer.

Pearl barley is very versatile and lends itself to a variety of dishes. Add pearl barley to soups, stir fries and stews in place of rice for a tasty change. It can also be cooked up as a hot cereal, stirred into salads, or used in stuffings. The mild nutty flavor and tender chewy texture is also wonderful in pilaf or risotto. See the back of our package for two scrumptious recipes using Barley—Pearl Barley Salad and Chicken Soup with Barley. Customers tell us our Pearl Barley is a great addition to our Vegi Soup Mix. Or, try our Pearl Barley in Scotch Broth, the quintessential Scottish soup made with pearl barley, lamb, and root vegetables. The options are bountiful!

6 Reviews For "Pearl Barley"

  1. Love the barley!

    by Mrs B on 02 Sat,2017


    This stuff is great. We use the pearl barley with stir fry, or with beans instead of rice. We love the texture and flavor. And you cannot beat it for nutritional value.

  2. Great for ground barley porridge

    by Bill on 03 Sun,2016


    I typically grind this down to grits consistency and use it for porridge (on its own, or added to oat bran + wheat bran). Delicious and quick cooking: 1/4 cup ground barley, 1 pinch of salt, pat of butter, 3/4 cup boiling water added slowly while mixing to prevent clumping, then microwaved 4 minutes at 50% power, sit for 3 minutes.

  3. Excellent stuff!

    by Deborah on 01 Fri,2016


    I've been eating your barley for years. I use it in stews, soups and as a cold side dish. Excellent stuff!

  4. Eating barley all my life

    by arcdude on 03 Sat,2013

    I have been eating barley way before I knew what it was. As a kid my favorite soup was Campbell's Scotch Broth. At the time I thought the barley was some kind of pasta. Now I know better, and I make my own beef barley soup with just a little bit of beef and hardly any salt. But I always use hulled barley, not pearled barley. Hulled barley is to brown rice as pearled barley is to white rice.

  5. Tender, flavorful, lost tradition

    by MrsSmith on 11 Sat,2010

    I think barley is one of those forgotten items that some asert to a "yuck food" from childhood. But in todays world I think chefs are begining to revitalize this tasty little grain. Healthy, and so versitil its perfect for lamb, beef or even a hearty winter soup. I add this to Bobs Vegi soup and its perfect everytime. I also add this to a lamb shank soup that my kids really devour, lamb is so unde

  6. An awseome heirloom grain!!!

    by MotherLodeBeth on 09 Wed,2010

    Growing up in the 50's and 60's my paternal Grandmother whose roots went back to Scotland would make the BEST Scotch Broth or what we called lamb soup, which had the meat from the bones she had cooked down, along with carrots, celery, and a wee bit of onion, along with barley which when cooked is so delicious. Its seen as a frugal soup, but doesnt mean its boring.||Barley is what I call an heirloo
