1 cup pearl barley
1 cup sugar
1 pound raisins
ground cinnamon, to taste
cold water
ground cinnamon for garnish
chopped almonds or hazelnuts for garnish


Wash the barley well. Place in a heavy pot and cover with 4 cups of water. Bring to a boil and turn off heat. Let barley re-hydrate.

Bring to the boil again and boil gently until barley is very soft and porridge-like in consistency, about 2 hours.

Add ground cinnamon to taste. Stir in the sugar and cook for a further 10 minutes. (As the barley mixture thickens, you need to stir it to prevent if from burning.) Add the raisins and cook a further 10 minutes or until the raisins plump.

Pour into mold or serving dish or individual serving cups. Place in refrigerator to chill and set. If using a mold, unmold to serve. May be served cold or heated. Serve with rosewater, or for a more elegant serving, serve with raspberry jam.
