  1. To tell you the truth, I don't know if I've ever eaten barley, but barley popsicles? It would be like eating oatmeal popsicles....hmmmm...

    1. We don't eat the barley. We drink the barley water after boiling it. It is a drink which is widely sold over here. Even the Indian shops have them. But theirs is made from barley powder which is not pure or authentic. The ones in the coffee shops are boiled from the barley grouts. And adding winter melon to it gives the drink an extra special taste. But I cannot eat winter melon. So I use brown sugar instead. :)

    2. * barley GROATS, I mean! :)
