instructions

Combine all ingredients in a crock pot. Cover and cook on low for six to eight hours, or on high for three to four hours. If you don’t have a crock pot, simply combine all the ingredients in a big pot, bring to a gentle boil, then turn down to simmer for two to three hours, stirring from time to time so ingredients don’t stick to the bottom.

The benefits of Barley:

Barley has been cultivated for over 10,000 years and is considered one of the world’s healthiest foods. It supports the intestines, stomach, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, thyroid, and the immune system. It’s an excellent source of fiber, and selenium, which has been shown to inhibit the proliferation of cancer cells. As a co-factor of glutathione peroxidase, selenium also works alongside Vitamin E, to be cardio-protective and even lessen the signs of arthritis.
