Barley Pioneer Bread

What’s your favorite family recipe? You know, that one that has been passed down from generation to generation. That crumpled up, food stained, edges ripped recipe card that has more stories associated with it then a TV soap opera!

We all have them. They’re the emotional glue that keeps our kitchen together. They’re the recipes that warm our hearts and bring our families together. They’re the dishes that help us remember who we are and where we came from.

Barley Flour

Today just happens to be one of those dishes. While I can’t claim it came directly from my family line, it for sure is a recipe we’ve all probably enjoyed, or can even find in our own family cookbooks. Made with our finely milled Barley Flour (pictured above), this bread recipe combines the perfect blend of old fashioned goodness with the simplicity and ease of modern baking. It even has a cool, old-fashion name. Get ready, it’s time to bake some Barley Pioneer Bread.
