Barley, Orange Persian (P, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 4

1 cup regular pearl barley
3 cups water
1/2 cup chopped pitted dates
1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
3 tablespoons orange marmalade
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup slivered toasted almonds

In a medium saucepan bring the barley and the water to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook, covered for 45 minutes until barley is tender and liquid is absorbed.

Coat a large skillet with nonstick spray. Cook and stir dates, apricots and marmalade over medium heat for three minutes. Blend in cumin, salt and pepper and simmer for two minutes longer. Stir in cooked barley and almonds. Reduce heat to medium low and cook until warmed through.
