      Barley was a staple grain in the Viking diet, and this warming porridge makes for a filling and nutritious breakfast or side dish.

      1 cup pearl barley
      4 cups water
      1/2 tsp salt
      2 tbsp butter
      1/2 cup milk or cream
      1/4 cup honey or brown sugar (optional)

      In a large saucepan, combine the pearl barley, water and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 45-60 minutes, or until the barley is tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed.

      Stir in the butter and milk or cream, and continue to cook for additional 5-10 minutes, or until the porridge reaches your desired consistency.

      Sweeten with honey or brown sugar, if desired, and serve hot.
