The recipe of barley porridge. In my family, from my childhood croup, as a rule, most often used buckwheat and rice. I loved the pearl barley. I cooked in the pressure cooker and soaked overnight. But it was long before mom found the recipe of "good barley".
Cereal rinse well. In a pot, boil 3 cups of water and pour the cereal, give her 7 minutes to simmer.
After that, the rump drain in a colander to drain the water.
In a saucepan pour 2 cups of water, salt (not if you fast, you can add 1 tablespoon of oil), when the water boils, put the prepared groats, cover and simmer cook until thick. It takes me about 25 minutes.
