so I have some pearl barley I had bought last year or the year before, to use in beef stews and such, but I don't cook anything like that any more and wanted to use it up. so I tried cooking it in hot oil, like popcorn. sure enough, it puffed up a little, nowhere near the way popcorn does, but enough to easily munch, and makes as good a salt substrate as any other carb. I guess now I've got to try it with my leftover wheat kernels too.
