[frozen-assets] Re: Cooking wholegrains in the oven
- I have a recipe for cooking barley that is very good. I got it from the
"Frugal Gourmet". It is very simple. Just take one cup pearl barley
(not quick) and saute it in a pan with one yellow one, diced. Then put
it all in a casserole, and add six cups beef broth. Cook at 350 degrees
for 1-2 hours, stirring periodically, till all the broth is absorbed.
This is very good, and freezes very well. And yes, the proportions are
correct - one cup regular pearl barley to six cups broth.

- I have never used the oven. I am a fan of Gabe Mirkin and use his
method of cooking grains overnight in a thermos jug.
I also suspect any grain could be mixed in proper quantities to water
and brought to a boil and put in a covered slow cooker before bedtime,
so it would be ready in larger quantities in the AM.
My thermos technique (Dr. Mirkin's guidelines) indicates 3 hours in the
thermos would cook Kamut, Rye, Spelt and Wild Rice. Times range from 5
minutes (oatmeal) to the three hours (2 hours for barley).
I will be interested in hearing about oven cooking. Is it a slow and

- Hi Elaine,
Please would you give a bit more information about Dr. Mirkin's guidelines -
is there a web site ... or a book?
I found one web page several months ago regarding thermos cooking but that
only talks about whole wheat.
Thanks in advance!
