Chaddesden Barley Water
Ingredients
1 tablespoon of pearl barley
Peel of 4 lemons
8 lumps of sugar
4 pints boiling water
Method
Scald the pearl barley by pouring boiling water over it and then strain and discard the water. Put the scalded barley into a large basin with the peel of the 4 lemons cut into strips and the 8 lumps of sugar.
Pour 4 pints of boiling water over the barley mixture, cover and leave to cool. When cold pour slowly into a jar to leave behind the sediment but do not strain it off. The juice of a lemon may be added before serving
