Barley

While barley might not seem like the typical ingredient you cook with, it's actually quite versatile. It can help thicken soups, be a flavor enhancer in salads, or even be the star ingredient in things like risottos or vegetarian burgers. On this episode, we'll visit eastern Iowa to see how one farmer harvests this beautiful grain. Then, Chef Eric Johnson from the Northside Bistro in Iowa City will stop by the studio kitchen to share a few hearty recipes using barley. We'll also go to cheese school to learn about different styles of cheese.
