Barley

Is pearl barley safe to eat?

Of course! It's sold as food, why would it not be safe to eat?

Barley is a very popular grain. Pearl barley simply has the hull and bran removed, leaving a whiter less fibrous grain. Barley is eaten in soups, as a porridge, and can be mixed with rice as a grain side dish.

How is barley pollinated?

Barley is wind pollinated. The male parts of the flower produce a pollen that is blown off by the wind and this then sticks to the female parts of the flower as the breeze blows past them. As with most wind pollinated plants, huge amounts of pollen are produced and breathing this can cause certain people to develop hay fever in the spring/summer.

Can you feed smut covered barley to cattle?

It's best if you avoid feeding spoiled or moldy feed to cattle, particularly cows in calf or with a calf at side. Mycotoxins in cattle is a result of feeding too much moldy feed, and thus poisons them, something you don't really want to have in your animals. It's okay if you're feeding it occaisonally to stocker steers, like if it's mixed with non-smut-covered seeds, but don't feed it straight because they may not eat it anyways. They do that with moldy hay too, they leave the bale be until they're really hungry and don't have any other feed left, and then they'll eat it.

The other side of it is that sometimes you can't avoid it. There may be a bale of hay that is mostly good, but has a little spoilage, but really a little spoilage isn't going to hurt. It's the fact that feeding moldy hay (or a bale that's spoiled through and through) that's the problem. That's why I mentioned to mix the spoiled barley with non-spoiled barley.

Why has the strength changed on the bottles of barley wine?

Lots of possible reasons: *It may be being brewed in a different way causing the strength to be stronger or weaker. *Barley wine tends to be stronger than most beers. Stronger brews may be subject to different regulations and taxing for sale in different states, and the brewer may have changed it accordingly. Even the fact that it has a strength listed indicates it is considered hard liquor rather than beer.

History of Ireland
Barley

What is the significance of barley in Irish Folk Tales?

Barley was an important crop in Ireland as elsewhere in Europe due to it being an essential ingredient in the production of beer. People got drunk a lot in times gone by, probably more so than now in fact. The reason for this is that there wasn't a lot else to do! So barley and the success of the crop would have meant the difference between getting through the winter with a smile or a tear.

How long can cooked barley stay good in refrigerator?

After you have cooked the barley, you must cool any leftovers to room temperature, usually while you eat. Then place the leftovers into the refrigerator UNCOVERED for 10-15 minutes, preferably spead flat on a plate, in order to cool it off quickly. After it has cooled to fridge temperature, you may pack it into tupperware. Be sure to place some plastic wrap to the top of the barley to minimize air contact, which will dry out the topmost barley. Place it back in the fridge.

After following these instructions for storage, the barley will last 3-5 days, depending on the internal temperature of the refrigerator.
