SHED Purple Barley
An heirloom variety, black barley has been farmed for generations in small batches and is prized for its flavor, color, and nutritional value. Black barley has a more vibrantly nutty taste than traditional barley, and its mahogany color develops a rich, glossy sheen when cooked.
As a 100% wholegrain, black barley is rich in nutritional value, particularly high in fiber. We recommend adding it to soups, salads, stuffings, pilafs and more, used on its own or in combination with other grains.
