Back on the farm in Ireland this dish was a way to use up leftover apples after the harvest. I just happen to have some extra apples myself and while on the hunt for something to do with them, I found this interesting recipe. It only calls for five ingredients--what could be simpler?

How to Make TRADITIONAL IRISH APPLE BARLEY PUDDING

Step-by-Step

  1. In a heavy pot, bring water and barley to a boil. Add sliced apples and simmer until barley and apples are soft, about 30 to 40 minutes.
  2. Remove mixture from heat and place in a blender or food processor. Puree until nearly smooth.
  3. Return mixture to the pot and stir in the 1/4 cup sugar and the lemon juice. Bring to a second boil and boil gently for about 5 minutes, until syrupy bubbles form. Remove from heat and cool at room temperature.
  4. When cooled, transfer to another container and refrigerate until very cold.
  5. When ready to serve, stir 2 Tbsp. cream into the pudding.
    For a fancier dessert, whip 1 cup of heavy cream with 1 Tbsp. sugar and layer with pudding in parfait glasses.
