Barley Water

(Practical Cookery.) - (The Most Valuable And Original Receipts)

Boil a couple of ounces of barley, in two quarts of water, till

soft--pearl barley is the best, but the common barley answers very well.

When soft, strain and mix it with a little currant jelly, to give it a

pleasant, acid taste. If the jelly is not liked, turn it, when boiled

soft, on to a couple of ounces of figs or raisins, and boil it again,

till reduced to one quart, then strain it for use.

Thoroughly wash two ounces of pearl barley, (which costs

less than two cents,) to remove any musty or bad flavor, put it over the

fire in two quarts of cold water, and boil it until it is reduced to one
